Assessment of REDD+ training needs and supply in six countries in the Africa and Asia-Pacific Regions

REDD+ capacity building is fundamental to achieving REDD+ readiness. There is little data, however, that describe the type of capacity building and the number of people that are reached with these initiatives in REDD+ countries. The lack of information makes it difficult to determine where additional investments in capacity building are needed. This report presents results from a study of REDD+ capacity building initiatives that were implemented in Cambodia, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Indonesia, Liberia, Madagascar and Papua New Guinea (PNG) between September 2010 and June 2012. It is intended to assist the organisations that fund and conduct capacity building for REDD+ to more efficiently target their efforts.

The report describes training supply in the country and the perceptions of key actors engaged in the REDD+ process about the priority capacity building needs. It finds that in all of the studied country the supply of REDD+ training does not meet demand. However, there has been important progress in REDD+ awareness raising, training for REDD+ policy development and planning, as well as community carbon accounting.
