The Programme aims to increase rural income in its target area, which consists of seven districts in the southern highlands. It will reduce poverty and inequality through developing sustainable plantation forestry and adding value to the entire forest product value chain, from quality seeds planted on the land to quality products sold in markets.

Ecosystem services in productive and protected land/seascapes conserved by improved land use and marine spatial planning policies and land/seascape level management in Gambia.
By maintaining and protecting 101,000 ha of rainforest in the provinces of Jambi and South Sumatra, the first areas to be designated for ecosystem restoration in Indonesia, some 15.2 million tonnes of CO2 are to be securely stored over a 30-year period to serve as a model for how inactive production forest licences can be applied to a further 24 million ha of rainforest.
The project aims to preserve forest ecosystems in the Pacific and thus contribute to climate change mitigation. To this end it is supporting three island states in creating the conditions necessary for par-ticipation in an international financing mechanism for reducing emissions from the forest sector (REDD+). Together with the partners it is developing REDD+ strategies and policies and boosting capabilities in the field of measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) at national level.
The project targets efforts to preserve the largest contiguous tropical forest complex in the world in three countries with areas located within the so-called Guiana Shield (Guyana, Surinam and Brazil). To this end, the project supports comprehensive conservation area management in the Brazilian states of Amapá and Pará. In Guyana and Surinam, inventory analyses are being conducted to quantify carbon, biodiversity and deforestation factors to provide a foundation for developing national REDD demonstration projects.
To support public-private partnerships that demonstrate how companies, communities, smallholders and governments can work collaboratively to reduce deforestation and benefit forest dependent communities. Land is one component of this programme.
The effects of climate change and the advanced deforestation in the Amazon region pose a threat to the livelihood of the local population and biodiversity. Protection efforts in communal reserves have had little success to date because the indigenous communities were not involved in the protection measures. The project’s objective is to further develop the co-management approach and implement it in selected communal reserves for indigenous communities. To achieve this objective, there will be interventions in four areas: 1. Developing co-management concepts and capacities; 2.
The purpose of the project is to conserve natural resources in Peru's Manu Biosphere Reserve, home to a unique and rich biological diversity. To this end, it assists the local population in managing natural resources.
The project objective is to conserve forests as natural carbon stores and to establish carbon sinks through reforestation in the province of West Kalimantan. Working in collaboration with a forestry operation in the boundary zone of the national park, the project seeks to identify forest areas highly worthy of preservation and to designate these zones protected areas. Degraded forest areas between Betung Kerihun and Danau Sentarum National Parks that hitherto have been separated are to be rejoined through reforestation efforts at the community level.
One of the negative impacts of uncontrolled deforestation within the Western Caucasus World Natural Heritage Site is that adjacent villages are being ever more frequently affected by flooding and landslides. The project combines protection and sustainable use of the remaining Nordmann fir forests through the designation of a buffer zone with sustainable forest management and exploitation of renewable energy sources. In addition to avoiding climate-changing emissions, this will guarantee a long-term income source for the population and reduce its exposure to impacts from climate change.
