    The Mucuri Springs Project aims to promote the rational use of natural resources in rural properties located in the Mucuri River Basin, in the northeast of Minas Gerais and the extreme south of Bahia States, Brazil, encouraging the conservation and recovery of springs, watercourses, and permanent preservation areas. The prject also seeks to promote the transition to agroecology, guiding farmers, farmer’s families, and rural communities for more sustainable production, combining food security, income generation, and delivering environmental education throughout public reading policies and training in rural communities. It started in three municipalities of Minas Gerais State, and in 2019 a study was carried out to map the most critical areas in terms of a greater potential for soil loss and for water production. Within over three years of experience, the project has served 49 rural communities and has involved 1,506 families, 351 of which are partners. Altogether, 1,468 springs were mapped and characterized, of which 402 were protected, totaling more than 200 hectares in process of restoration and over 30 thousand native seedlings planted. These areas are being monitored and, when needed, restoration techniques have been proposed. Regarding agroecological practices, until now, agroforestry systems have been implemented in two properties and more than 2,600 seedlings have been supplied and planted to enrich the productive yard and preservation areas. Rotational management was also implemented in eleven pasture areas, 3,30 hectares of family crops were fertilized organically, and 21,50 hectares were given techniques for soil recovery. The Project has the perspective of operating strategically on priority areas of the Mucuri River basin, seeking regular flow and reducing impacts of climate change for the region .

    Building National Capacity to Measure, Report and Verify Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Thailand’s Forest and Land Use Sector - UTF/THA/034/THA 2021

    The Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has adopted a forestry greenhouse gas (GHG) emission mitigation mechanism known as “REDD+”, which will provide positive incentives to developing countries to voluntarily reduce their rates of deforestation and forest degradation and increase their forest carbon stocks, as part of a post 2020 global climate change agreement reached at COP 21 in Paris in 2015 (the “Paris Agreement”). The objective of the project was to support Thailand, in particular the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation, in establishing a Forest Reference Emission Level (FRL) for REDD+, as well as a Measurement, Monitoring and Reporting (MMR) component of the National Forest Monitoring System (NFMS).

    Supporting Local Populations through a Project to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions From Forests in Congo - UNJP/PRC/019/UNJ 2020

    Since 2008, Congo has been committed to the Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation in developing countries (REDD+) process, with a view to tackling climate change, protecting its forest ecosystems, combatting poverty and laying the foundations for a green economy and sustainable development in the country. Congo’s proactive attempts to secure financing for its national REDD+ Investment Plan led it to request the technical assistance of FAO in developing a project proposal for the Green Climate Fund, with a focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions from forests in five departments of the country. Through a range of outputs and activities, including analysis of local agriculture and forestry models, consultative processes involving local women’s and indigenous groups and economic and financial analysis, the full project proposal package was enhanced, finalized and ultimately submitted to the Green Climate Fund in January 2020.
