Abstract
"The initial purpose of this assessment was to identify good practices, lessons learned and key entry points for increasing women‘s participation in and benefit from REDD+ activities, as well as opportunities to advance gender equality through this sector. This study aimed to provide recommendations on how future REDD+ initiatives in Asia, including USAID/RDMA‘s (Regional Development Mission for Asia) new Sustainable Landscapes program, can successfully integrate gender into REDD+ projects to ensure the effectiveness and sustainability of USAID‘s REDD+ work and that USAID assistance makes the optimal contribution to gender equality. This assessment was conducted prior to the award of the USAID/RDMA‘s Sustainable Landscapes project with the goal of informing its design. The findings of the assessment are being integrated into RDMA‘s Lowering Emissions from Asia‘s Forests (LEAF) project, launched in early 2011."
