Among various options being suggested to reduce the impact of greenhouse gas emissions or climate change effects, reducing deforestation and forest degradation (REDD) is being suggested as one of the most economical methods. Forests, as we know, act both as a sink and source of CO2 emissions. The basic idea behind REDD is simple: countries (and communities) that are willing and able to reduce emissions from deforestation and degradation should be financially compensated for doing so.
This facilitators training manual has been prepared as an attempt to address the growing needs of capacity building for REDD+ in Nepal. The major objectives of this manual are to create a human resource base, which can facilitate the training and capacity building of the forestry sector grassroots stakeholders, preparing them to contribute in the evolving process of REDD+ and ultimately make them able to get benefits from the mechanism.
