Pan-African Forest-Dependent Indigenous Peoples FCPF Capacity Building Program on REDD+

The Facility has since inception has become a global partnership of governments, businesses, civil society and Indigenous peoples with its main focus being laying the ground for future REDD+ activities, and piloting performance-based payment systems. In this regard, the FCPF has chosen MPIDO through a competitive process to implement the project aimed at strengthening the knowledge of the targeted forest-dependent indigenous peoples of REDD+ readiness at the National level and the knowledge exchange at the regional level in the African region.

MPIDO was selected as an implementing organization based on its capacity to implement project activities and its credibility at the regional level to address issues related to forestry, climate change and REDD+. PACJA (PanAfrican Climate Justice Alliance) was equally chosen on the same objectives to the Civil Societies and Local Communities in Africa.

The regional project is implemented between June 2016 and June 2018 with exclusive FCPF funding. MPIDO in turn facilitated an open process of selecting in a competitive manner, from eligible countries, national organizations that would implement national level activities in line with the agreed objectives of the program as well as in complementarity with the national REDD+ plans and goals in the eligible country.
Pursuant to the Project, MPIDO is supporting the following organizations for National Level activity implementation:

Project Development Objective (PDO):

(i) The knowledge of targeted forest-dependent indigenous peoples of REDD+ Readiness at the national level
