National Strategy for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation

Executive
Strategy
Passed in 2015
This strategy aims at reducing emissions from Zambian forests, notably thanks to improved land management, inclusion of communities into sustainable agricultural and forestry activities, and adoption of more sustainable mining and energy practices. The strategy calls for ensuring equitable sharing of both carbon and non-carbon benefits among stakeholders.
The document analyses the Zambian context in terms of forest resources, land management and practices, existing REDD+-oriented framework and socio-economic structure. It defines the specific drives of deforestation and forest degradation, examines the implementation of REDD+ in Zambia, including the conditions for the setting up Forest Reference Emission Levels, and exposes forest-related institutional arrangements that enable the strategy.
