    Forest governance by indigenous and tribal peoples. An opportunity for climate action in Latin America and the Caribbean 2021
    Also available in:

    The document summarizes the report that, based on a review of more than 250 studies, demonstrates the importance and urgency of climate action to protect the forests of the indigenous and tribal territories of Latin America as well as the indigenous and tribal peoples who protect them. These territories contain about a third of the continent's forests. That's 14% of the carbon stored in tropical forests around the world; These territories are also home to an enormous diversity of wild fauna and flora and play a key role in stabilizing the local and regional climate. Based on an analysis of the approaches that have proven effective in recent decades, a set of investments and policies is proposed for adoption by climate funders and government decision-makers in collaboration with indigenous and tribal peoples. These measures are grouped into five main categories: i) strengthening of collective territorial rights; ii) compensate indigenous and tribal communities for the environmental services they provide; iii) facilitate community forest management; iv) revitalize traditional cultures and knowledge; and v) strengthen territorial governance and indigenous and tribal organizations. Preliminary analysis suggests that these investments could significantly reduce expected carbon emissions at a low cost, in addition to offering many other environmental and social benefits.

    No-Objection Procedure for Green Climate Fund Projects in the Republic of North Macedonia - Factsheet 2019
    Also available in:

    The Green Climate Fund (GCF) is a new global fund created by the countries, parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), to support the efforts of developing countries to respond to the challenge of climate change. GCF seeks to promote a paradigm shift to low-emission and climate-resilient development, accounting for the needs of nations that are particularly vulnerable to climate change impacts. The principle of Country Ownership is at the heart of the work the GCF conducts in the developing world. The Fund also recognizes that country ownership is a continual process, and that National Designated Authorities (NDAs) have a key role in driving institutional development and stakeholder engagement for establishing effective mechanism that addresses climate-related issues. This factsheet is jointly developed by the Cabinet of the Deputy President of the Government of North Macedonia in charge of Economic Affairs, in its role as NDA to GCF and FAO in the frames of the project “Support for the management of an effective national coordinative mechanism regarding the Green Climate Fund. It is intended to familiarize all relevant national stakeholders (institutions, government agencies, academia, private sector, civil society and international organizations) in North Macedonia about the key aspects of country ownership in the work of the GCF, the GCF Project approval cycle and No-Objection procedure in North Macedonia, exercised by the NDA to ensure that financing through the GCF will be transparent, consistent with national climate priorities, strategies, plans, is country-driven, effective and leaves no one behind.

    FAO, an accredited entity to the Green Climate Fund, is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, assessing and mitigating the current and potential impacts of the pandemic on GCF-funded projects. This Q&A looks at how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting FAO’s GCF-related work – e.g. project timelines, funding proposal submissions, and upcoming GCF Board meeting dates – as well as the measures that are being put in place to mitigate these impacts. The information presented may be of interest to GCF National Designated Authorities, focal points, government counterparts, and stakeholders in general.
