Description: As part of their development of a new Country Development Strategy, and with potential for incoming Sustainable Landscapes funding, USAID/Philippines commissioned the U.S. Forest Service to work with them on an assessment of efforts aimed at Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) in the Philippines, including the role of conservation, sustainable management of forests, and enhancement of forest carbon stocks. The purpose of the assessment, whose findings are summarized in this report, was to provide USAID/Philippines with an analysis of opportunities and challenges for developing and implementing REDD+ programs in the Philippines. The assessment examined the current REDD+ landscape in the Philippines, and the technical and policy issues relevant for the development and implementation of REDD+. Through this report the assessment is providing recommendations to USAID/Philippines that will be used to inform the planning process for their potential future activities. The in-country portion of the assessment was conducted from January 14 to January 21. Primary input came from consultations with national and local government, stakeholders in the field and in Manila, NGOs, donors, and development banks.
