Establishing a Civil Society
Advisory Group
and
Accelerated Global Learning on Forests,
Livelihoods and Climate Change
Rationale
1. Urgent need to accelerate learning between all
actors on REDD;
2. Value of ensuring regular input from
independent, technical voices with global
perspective;
3. Would help advance best practice, coherence,
coordination between different REDD
initiatives
Recommendations of UN-REDD
Programme
1. Establish Civil Society Advisory Group on
Forests, Livelihoods and Climate Change
(CSAG)
2. Sponsor events to accelerate learning
•
Precedents:
–

2. Oslo Conference on Forests, Rights and CC;

TORS and Principles of CSAG

Offer formal advice to the UN-REDD Policy Board

–
(expand to FCPF and REDD Contact Group as invited)
Advice not binding on UN-REDD (Policy Board or Secretariat)
2.
Respond to ad hoc requests from UN-REDD Programme for technical
assistance;
3.
Design and organize meetings to accelerate learning (side events,
conferences) in collaboration with UN-REDD
•
CSAG not seek funding from UN-REDD except to cover costs of at least
one participant in Policy Board meetings
Principles:
•
Don’t attempt to be fully “representative” (that is role of CSO and IP
members of Policy Board)
•
Be completely transparent
•
Self-governed, flexible, nimble
Status
• Interim CSAG established at the Oslo
conference on Forests, Rights and Climate
Change
• Will update governance structure at next
meeting (aiming for 13 June)
Proposed Responsibilities of UNREDD
1. Issue formal TORs to CSAG and
invitation to address Policy Board;
2. Provide funds for at least one member
per meeting;
3. Provide CSAG with meeting agendas,
reports and documentation
