NAMAs and REDD+: Relationship and main issues for consideration – with a focus on Southeast Asia

This study has been organized through GIZ’s regional knowledge exchange fora, the so-called “Sector Networks”, and is based on case studies from countries in the region: Indonesia, Lao PDR, Philippines, Thailand and Viet Nam. It analyzes the current situation in these countries with regard to NAMAs and REDD+ and develops options on how the linkages of both can be dealt with in future. The final result is a product of the “REDD+ Working Group” of the GIZ Sector Network on Rural Development and Management of Natural Resources (SNRD) Asia and the “NAMAs and Market Mechanisms Working Group” of the Sector Network Transport, Environment, Energy, Water (TUEWAS) Asia. Together with the NAMA Source Book, that was developed in 2012 under TUEWAS it is supposed to serve as a resource for advisory services and building capacities towards NAMAs and REDD+ for GIZ experts working in this field.
