Stakeholder Engagement strategy – FIP Process (November 2016)

Uganda’s FIP and Strategy and Plan is expected to be country-led and country-driven, designed to support Uganda’s REDD Readiness efforts, by providing upfront bridge financing for readiness reforms and public and private investments identified through national REDD readiness strategy building efforts, while taking into account opportunities to help Uganda adapt to the impacts of climate change on forests and to contribute to multiple benefits such as biodiversity conservation, ecosystem services, protection of the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities, poverty reduction and rural livelihoods enhancements.
