The EU REDD Facility’s project in Côte d’Ivoire aims to overcome challenges in forest restoration through participatory land-use planning and securing land tenure. It focuses on developing village-level land-use planning methods to achieve a balance between agriculture and forestry. It also targets the gender-oriented delivery of land certificates on 2500 hectares of forest areas.
About the EU REDD Facility
The EU REDD Facility supports countries in improving land-use governance as part of their efforts to slow, halt and reverse deforestation. It also supports the overall EU effort to reduce its contribution to deforestation in developing countries. The Facility focuses on countries that are engaged in REDD+, an international mechanism that incentivises developing countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from their forest and land-use sectors. The Facility is hosted by the European Forest Institute and was established in 2010.
