Abstract

Key Messages:

• Using the cascade approach for capacity
development on Reducing Emissions from
Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD+)
has been proved to be a successful way to reach
out to a large number of grassroots stakeholders
in a cost effective manner.
• Establishing collaborative arrangements with
local partner organizations, including government
agencies can mobilize grassroots and relevant
stakeholders in understanding and planning for
effective climate change mitigation strategies.
• Integrating of local and indigenous wisdom with
scientific knowledge helps to internalize and
collectively respond to the challenges of climate
change.
• Drivers of deforestation and forest degradation
are multiple and go beyond subsistence use of
forest resources, and therefore REDD+ capacity
development efforts should also go much beyond
forestry sector stakeholders.
