The project aims to support PNG with the adoption of a Country Approach to safeguards and the design of the Safeguard Information System (SIS). This will be achieved by assisting with the necessary governance assessments (i.e. the identification and assessment of relevant legal framework, and the associated information systems and sources), by assisting with the clarification of the UNFCCC REDD+ safeguards to the country context and the identification of their associated reporting needs, by providing a conceptual framework for the design of the SIS, and by supporting awareness raising and capacity building activities.
The project is funded and supported by the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility through UNDP.
