Participants at the Drivers Inception Workshop

 
The Fiji National REDD+ Programme has commissioned the Conservation International (CI) to undertake a study of the Drivers of Deforestation and Forest Degradation and Respond Options.
 
The specific objectives of this study is that CI will have to identify and analyse all drivers and agents of deforestation and forest degradation (including mangroves) and how past and current policies, governance, economy, culture, and social demands play a role in influencing these drivers; identify and assess the barriers to, and the agents for, forest conservation, sustainable management of forests and forest carbon stock enhancement; determine land use and forest cover change trends and assess associated drivers; and identify strategy options and key interventions to address the drivers of deforestation and forest degradation and barriers to forest conservation, sustainable management of forests and forest carbon stock enhancement.
 
The first activity in this regard for CI is to carry out this Inception Workshop today whereby they will come up with a work plan of how they will address the stakeholders to get information and how they will gather relevant data and information already at hand. An Inception Report in this regard will be produced in two weeks time and will be posted on this Website.
