UN-REDD enables VNGOs to participate in discussions on REDD+ mechanism, however the development and implementation of REDD+ is still very much dominated by INGOs, with not enough focus on the benefits of working with local partners. FCPF and FIP mechanisms funnel through the Government, there would be benefit to ensuring VNGOs and their local knowledge is captured through partnerships and discussion forums. The women don't know how to distinguish between these separate entities. We hope we have identified the right ones. Each has offered to include women to apply as delegates to various conferences and workshops I work with the Congo Basin Forest partnersdhip and we work with all these processes. We at the initial phase of the UN - REDD readiness programme. We are being slow in getting the ball rolling mainly because of the minimal understanding of REDD process itself and the need for country-wide awareness. It is understood that all these programmes are here to allow industrialised countries to continue their high level of pollution and trying to get developing countries with high forest cover and indigenous peoples to take the responsibility and limiting their participation in the global conversation and their livelihoods without us fully understanding what these are all about and how we could be impacted from all. Government is yet to participate in the UN-REDD in order to articulate her interests under the National REDD+ Programme. The R+P is still suffereing from the dip in process and value for participants and its future must be in doubt. I am more familiar with FCPF, which include SESA. Transparency is essential for establishing credibility and legitimacy. In this respect the UNFCCC but also the WB funds rank higher than UN REDD. I'm not sure of what you want to realize from me but what I feel is that the processes to contain emissions from deforestation and forest degradation through global instruments like UNFCCC, UN-REDD or FCPF are taking too long while deforestation rates especially in poor countries like those in Africa South of the Sahara are increasing. These global mechanisms are considered sources of financial incentives but but so far the concentration is on undertaking studies and pilot projects while deforestation and forest degradation is at large. There is need to move fast through these global mechanisms to provide money that could be used at the grassroots level to enhance conservation through sustainable forest management and enhance carbon stocks by making more trees alive than seeing them dead.

We don't know from the position if distance and lack of communication to our organisations. This is probably due to technology limitation and not though any fault of the org. UNFCCC-REDD+and UN-REDD, FCPF are very active here in the Congo Basin I my view its not a question whether all interests are treated equally. UNFCCC is the convention on Climate Change and REDD+ is about reducing emissions or enhancing removals in order to mitigate climate change. This does not mean that REDD+ don't have to take many different interest into account but not necessary on a equal level. Government is yet to participate in the UN-REDD in order to articulate her interests under the National REDD+ Programme. Difficult question to answer. Not sure if all interests can be treated equally UNREDD and FCPF are making a big effort for their processes to be inclusive and make the input count. I am not clear, what does it mean the intersts mean. The FIP followed a very bizarre methodology to select the first set of recipient countries. The idea was to follow a "scientific" process, which was not convincing at all, full of holes and discretion. The selection of recipient countries is hence not convincing. Neither is the decision driven by powerful donors (in particular Norway) to exclude ECA and the transition countries from the fund. REDD+ partnership didnt want at the begining to allow the participation of civil society. Nowadays civil society can be there but are the last to be able to talk in meetings. I am closely working on FCPF and UNFCCC REDD+

Funding from remote villages to represent indigenous communities is always very expensive and fails to meet a lot if incidental costs if internal domestic travel that makes even applying to attend training and representative or participatory activities prohibitive. Add to that the cost of visas and lateness of offers reaching the women due to limited access to communication. I don,t benefit money froom these processes Non has funded my participation Coming from a developed country I am paid for by my governmant.

Don't know FCP supports many countries to set up their Rediness processses. Government is yet to participate in the UN-REDD in order to articulate her interests under the National REDD+ Programme. The questions seem to differ only in nuances. A bit repetetive. UN REDD has a very "funny" way of building guidelines. They "call" regional consultations to meetings in very expensive hotels to a group of people who are presented elements of the "guides". Interesting how they promote FPIC and not even conduct appropriate "consultation" processes for the design of their tools to promote safeguards for REDD+. FIP in most of the countries have not yet begun - difficult to assess. The agenda for the REDD+ partnership is so simple that not sure if you can compare with the others.

Dont know I think that it is difficult ta all these processes to be really democratic in their way of work Government is yet to participate in the UN-REDD in order to articulate her interests under the National REDD+ Programme. FIP has not started yet

Page 2, Q9. This question concerns the making of agreements within REDD+ . Q9: Do you consider the making of agreements in REDD+ to be effective? What rating would you give?

The awareness we carry out from anything we gain by contact with any/all of these org and their program's is helpful. Our communities. Are very interested and responsive to our work in climate change, food security, risk reduction etc. please keep it coming. We are having some effect on the ground and welcome any support. REDD I understand the question as being about the making of an agreement and not about whether the agreement is effective. Government is yet to participate in the UN-REDD in order to articulate her interests under the National REDD+ Programme. Again a tricky question - what are the agreements referred to? If you mean the process they are all effective i.e. they implement their plans but maybe you are really asking about efficiency - all need to tighten up. Not sure what agreements are meant here. Contracts under the FIP or FCPF are binding and effective; whether they lead to a reduction in emissions is a different question. A UNFCCC agreement on REDD facilitates emission reductions, it does not generate emission reductions per se. UNFCCC REDD+ is eventually compliance based forest carbon in climate change mitigation.

Have not had experience of this so have chosen the middle option so as not skew results, I would have left it blank but could not complete the survey if I did, I suggest having a N/A or unsure/unknown category in future surveys. Don't know and not aware of the internal politics between these organisations. The way the disputes are settled could be improved. Government is yet to participate in the UN-REDD in order to articulate her interests under the National REDD+ Programme. There are no dispute settlement mechanisms dedicated to REDD+. Normally disputes are settled in negotiations. An additional feature is the Inspection Panel of the WB.

Page 2, Q11. This question concerns the degree to which you think REDD+ will contribute to changing the behaviour that leads to deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries. Q11: Do you think REDD+ will contribute to changing the behaviour that leads to deforestation and forest degradation ...

My response assumes the many of the current issues are resolved in terms of BDS, monitoring etc, however, issues around high transaction costs, top heavy cost of project implementation etc mean that the likelihood of success remains fairly low. Nobody is helping us to get through to our own clansmen to stop clearing our forests or at least to take replanting seriously In general, the contribution of these processes to change the behaviour will be very low because there no ownership by the key stakeholders. This will only allow for land grabs as private investors will want to ensurethat they are compensated for the otherwise loss of forests while indigenous peoples are still seeking recognition of their traditionally occupied lands and resources. Government is yet to participate in the UN-REDD in order to articulate her interests under the National REDD+ Programme. Depends on the national implementation of REDD+. International incentives can facilitate but not replace national engagement. Behavior changes is most likely if financial incentives will flow to forest adjacent local communities and the indigenous peoples thereby enabling them to reduce their high dependence on forest resources (providing alternative livelihoods options and building their capacity to manage and utilize available resources on a sustainable basis). This is important without predictable financial flows REDD+ may remain on paper but with little impact on ground and people may not change their behavior.

as above If education and awareness could come directly to communities rather than just individual participants returning from distant conferences we might get more results. Why not partner our orbs to come in teams and work with us on the ground? The contribution of these processes to reduce the deforestation and the degradation will be very low because the access to the "REDD money " is still complicated the different initiatives will help solve the problem but the problem will not be 100% solved Government is yet to participate in the UN-REDD in order to articulate her interests under the National REDD+ Programme. UNREDD, FIP and FCPF are changing actual performance - the others are largely discussion fora. There is a need for exchange of views but I am not sure of the value of a process centered on discussion. See comment to question11. REDD+ partnership is just a plataform of exchange - not sure if they can be compared to the other mechanisms for this question Besides UNFCCC REDD+ others are just for facilitating REDD+ readiness process. I feel through global REDD+ mechanisms and with clear financial incentives the forest dependent communities and the indigenous people will take appropriate actions to conserve the forests. Currently deforestation and forest degradation are taking their tall because many people in rural areas are poor and have nothing else to make a living or earn some cash except relying heavily on forest resources available within the vicinity. It is anticipated that if viable alternative for livelihoods will be made available to them it is most likely to see some great changes in the way they use the natural resources especially the forests and woodlands. We should expect some positive changes but we need to move fast to make more trees alive than dead.

Page 2, Q13. This question concerns the durability of REDD+. 'Durability' here means long-lasting, resilient, flexible and adaptable. Q13: Do you consider REDD+ will be durable? What rating would you give?

If a successful REDD+ program is implemented with a market mechanism for funding linked to carbon trading the market should be self-sustaining. Again, this rests on a large 'if'. At this point the FCPF funding seems to provide only minor additional benefit. It is unclear how exactly this mechanism and FIP will operate. Hope so In the current design in which drivers have not been sufficiently addressed it is high unlikely. It is difficult to know the future of REDD+ processes Government is yet to participate in the UN-REDD in order to articulate her interests under the National REDD+ Programme. How should we know at this point? None yes it is most likely to be durable as long as financial flows through bilateral, multilateral or carbon trading markets will remain predictable and sustainable and beneficial to the local communities and indigenous peoples.

Page 2, Q14. Is there anything else you would like to say?

My experience is largely with the UN-REDD program, UNFCCC and REDD+ Partnerships I have heard of but not been involved in. I have spoken with the World Bank about FCPF and FIP and feel that these processes also will not have much relevance from the perspective of a VNGO (as they tend to focus on VN Gov). I have tried three times tO complete this survey on line but due to power cut offs and signal problems have been interrupted and the efforts shut down mid completion. I do not know if you received any partial attempts from Bougainville but we have tried since Nov and do apologise. I am trying this last effort from the domestic terminal in POM. Hope it gets through. Thanks. no I think it will be relvant to waork on the ownership of these processes before we go ahead Effective coordination of all the mechanisms at both global and national levels is key for a full implementation of REDD+ on the ground. I am not so much familiar with all mechanism REDD+ Programmes in developing countries in Africa especially Tanzania to succeed, there needs to be a community oriented performance based REDD model that will depend on the government recognizing community rights to directly access REDD revenues generated from reduced deforestation on village lands. Prioritizing in the improvement of governance is a very intergral part of the readiness activitiesof REDD+. Communities should take a lead in advocacting for issues that are pertinen it to their livelihoods if given the right package of awareness in the process of making informed decisions. None All five approach of REDD+ are not equally in operation in the country. So, I may be biased on which I mostly involving. UN-REDD- its a good programme if undertaken with inclusion of grassroot people When the discussions and negotiations on REDD+ plus started in 2007 (December in Bali, Indonesia) poor countries like Tanzania had great hopes that within a near future local communities especially those adjacent communities would benefit from forest conservation efforts (result based). This hinged on the fact that some financing was forth coming through REDD+ however, this high expectation is fading away simply because it is taking long to see some money flowing to the intended beneficiaries. We are not sure if the global agreement will be reached in Durban, South Africa. Without a solid global agreement we are likely to see REDD+ not an effective mechanism to help save the forests and other biodiversity resources.
