    Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions through Community Forests and Sustainable Biomass Energy in Afghanistan - GCP/AFG/081/GFF 2020
    Also available in:

    In Afghanistan, the harvesting of biomass fuels (wood, shrubs, crop residues and dried animal dung) to supply energy for cooking and heating has resulted in substantial deforestation and land degradation. This has been accelerated by the disruption of socio-economic structures and widespread environmental damage caused by decades of instability and violent conflict. The Government of Afghanistan has acknowledged the importance of adopting improved practices for natural resources management (NRM) and increasing access to sustainable, affordable energy. However, the introduction of sustainable alternatives to traditional practices, for example improved forest management or alternative cooking fuel techniques, requires sustained technical support and investments in research, monitoring, capacity building and awareness raising. Against this background, the project aimed to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by promoting community-based management of forests and natural resources, and removing barriers to sustainable biomass energy in two target districts (Salang and Dara-e-Noor) in Afghanistan.

    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.

    Terminal evaluation of “Reducing greenhouse gas emissions by promoting community forestry, removing barriers to sustainable biomass energy, and laying the groundwork for climate change mitigation in Afghanistan”

    Afghanistan’s high diversity of rangeland and forest ecosystems provide valuable goods and services for local communities. Unsustainable land and resource management practices, as well as climate changes, are accelerating the degradation of these ecosystems and affecting local livelihoods. FAO recognizes community based natural resource management (CBNRM) and Sustainable Biomass Energy Systems (SBES) as potential tools to address these issues, and implemented the project in the Parwan and Nangarhar provinces between August 2016 and July 2019. The evaluation presents the results of SBES and CBNRM in the project, both of which were succesful in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, as well as the policy and awareness raising results. It also assesses the security challenges behind the project management decision making, gender issues, and other barriers and risks that may prevent the progress of future projects.
