The UNFCCC safeguards and the World Bank operational policies are incorporated across the board in every one of the activities of the REDD + Strategy. This comes into effect immediately when the proposed activities are conceptualized and implemented to meet REDD + proposed strategic actions and activities.
In terms of the development of safeguards in the national context, the process of information with RIPs has begun, specifically with indigenous territories and agroforestry producers, which are framed in the national legal framework and feed the information system safeguards.
The UN-REDD Programme has provided targeted support to Fonafifo to design the national information system on REDD + safeguards under the UNFCCC. Under this system, the country will report on the approach and implementation of the safeguards.
The measures generated under REDD + readiness and implementation (SESA and ESMF) will be part of the system and displayed as inputs for the development of indicators.
In terms of co-benefits, the strategy aims to develop a series of studies to quantify the co-benefits associated with REDD +. Furthermore, social and environmental indicators for the implementation of the Program for the Payment of Environmental Services (PPSA) will be generated.
