The knowledge and skills needed to engage in REDD+: A competencies framework

From forest-dependent communities to government staff, many stakeholders are in need of comprehensive information to effectively engage in the design and implementation of REDD+ activities.

Recognizing this need, members of the Alliance for Global REDD+ Capacity (AGRC) have created The knowledge and skills needed to engage in REDD+: a competencies framework, a single reference that enables readers to quickly understand key concepts, policy benchmarks, technical elements, skills, tools and resources for ten specific REDD+ themes.

In addition to covering these ten REDD+ themes, the framework also provides guidance on designing REDD+ capacity development programmes for a variety of stakeholders, with case studies on existing REDD+ capacity development programmes.

The materials were first developed by technical experts from Conservation International (CI), Centro Agronómico Tropical de Investigación y Enseñanza (CATIE), International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), RECOFT - The Center for People and Forests, and then reviewed by a multidisciplinary group of subject matter experts from REDD+ country governments, USAID, FCMC, NGOs and AGRC members.

This document was developed with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) funded Forest Carbon Markets and Communities (FCMC) Programme.
