This policy brief will show that climate change and its impacts are not gender neutral and nor are its policies and actions. Due to their gender-defined roles in society and traditional patterns of marginalization, women are amongst those that are likely to carry the heaviest burdens from these changes and benefit less from the policies and programmes that address these.
The policy brief also shows that women should not be seen as ‘victims’. They are also crucial actors in CCA and DRR and their needs and knowledge should be used to inform the design, implementation, and monitoring of climate change and DRR policies.
Under REDD+, developing countries like Viet Nam will need to generate evidence of "results-based actions" to receive payments for the reduction of carbon emissions or enhanced removals of carbon. The national Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) system holds the key for producing this evidence.
The UN-REDD Viet Nam Programme is assisting the Govenment of Viet Nam in the Readiness Phase of REDD+. One of the key activities is the development of a national REDD+ Strategy. A team of international and national consultants have prepared a draft strategy for the national REDD+ Strategy as a basis for further discussions with Government and civil society stakeholders.
This fact sheet provides an overview of lessons learned from develpoing benefit distribution systems in Viet Nam. REDD+ can only succeed if performance-based payments are effectively and equitably distributed. The UN-REDD Programme has assisted the Government of Viet Nam to identify the key issues that need to be addressed in the design of a REDD+ compliant benefit distribution system.
This factsheet provides an overview of the Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) process in Viet Nam under the UN-REDD Viet Nam Programme. Viet Nam was the first country to conduct a FPIC process. The FPIC process was conducted in 78 villages of Lam Ha and Di Linh districts in the pilot province of Lam Dong because of the prevelance of ethnic minority people.
