The global demand for modern bioenergy, and especially liquid biofuels, is rapidly growing, driven mainly by climate change mitigation policies and increasing oil prices. This creates both opportunities and risks for developing countries. FAO’s Bioenergy and Food Security Criteria and Indicators (BEFSCI) project has developed a set of criteria, indicators, good...
This report presents a cost-benefit framework for accounting for the ecosystem service and economic impacts of forest landscape restoration activities in a way that allows the results to be structured to inform multiple types of restoration decision-making that can help decision makers understand the trade-offs of different restoration scenarios. The...
Inequity along gender lines has been one of the main factors driving the establishment of womenfocused and, more recently, gender-focused programmes. The earliest and most pronounced recognition of the gender disparities in development was the announcement by the international community of International Women’s Year in 1975 and its later extension...
This guide was prepared to assist senior level program managers and policy makers in establishing priorities and making choices for invasive species management programs. While recognizing the critical and primary importance of prevention programs, the focus of the guide is the management of invasive species once they have arrived, which...
This report describes a general framework for and approach to assessing the vulnerability of forest-based communities to climate change and the potentially increased risks associated with such change. Communities that face relatively high levels of exposure to climate change and that are highly sensitive to changes in the composition and...
Sustainable Land Management (SLM) in the context of WOCAT is defined as the use of land resources, including soils, water, animals and plants, for the production of goods to meet changing human needs, while simultaneously ensuring the long-term productive potential of these resources and the maintenance of their environmental functions....
The goal of this Guide is to provide national law and policy-makers with practical information and guidance for developing or strengthening legal and institutional frameworks on alien invasive species, consistently with Article 8(h) of the Convention on Biological Diversity, as well as pertinent obligations under other international and regional instruments. The...
Forest plantations are a powerful tool in the continuing efforts of foresters to increase productivity per unit area - the only means of reconciling the increasing demands for forest products and services on the one hand with a decreasing area of land available for forestry on the other. There is...
The Restoration Opportunities Assessment Methodology (ROAM) described in this handbook provides a flexible and affordable framework for countries to rapidly identify and analyse forest landscape restoration (FLR) potential and locate specific areas of opportunity at a national or sub-national level. A ROAM application is generally undertaken by a small core assessment...
This Guide aims to assist in understanding and implementing the UNFCCC REDD+ Safeguards, and contribute to the design and development of a CSS. In particular, the substantive guidance provided in this report contributes to the development of the three main components of a CSS: (1) adoption of national safeguards; (2) safeguard implementation...
