Integrating governance monitoring into IM-FLEGT and IM-REDD to improve forest governance

Ensuring transparent and participatory forestry reform (FCRC-2005 and FRMC-2006)

  • Began on cleaned slate – no old concessions and new forestry reform law (NFRL 2006)
  • Progressive NFRL provisions on stakeholders (communities and CSOs) participation and monitoring
  • Specific provisions for stakeholders participation in developing new legal frameworks
  • Completion of CRL and regulations (2009 and 2011)
  • REDD+ processes not fully participatory compared to VPA, although there were efforts to involve CSOs
  • FPIC principles left to interpretation by concessionaires
  • TFA2020 could be a useful vehicle but definition of deforestation problematic
