Reducing emissions from all land use (REALU)

CIAT DAPA researchers are working with the ASB partnership for the tropical forest margins to investigate how programs for reducing emissions from deforestation and degradation might be implemented in practice. The effort is a whole landscape approach and is referred to as Reducing Emissions from All Land Uses (REALU). The project — a multi-year effort funded by the Norwegian government — is built on case studies of REDD implementation in Indonesia, Vietnam, Cameroon and Peru. CIAT’s work focuses on the central Peruvian Amazon where nearly 2 decades of research forms the basis for the case study. Our results:  (1) document the necesity of defining exactly what constitutes a forest, (2) evaluate the effects of scale on emissions reduction programs and (3) show the importance of trees on farm for carbon sequestration.  The first phase of the project ended last month. The results of our research have been reported in a national workshop report (pdf) and the phase 1 project report (pdf). Research by our partners in ICRAF on perceptions of equity and efficiency in the REDD value chain have also been reported (pdf). The project just entered its second year in phase 2. Stay tuned.
