A national training workshop to assess the total costs of REDD+ activities in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) was held in Kinshasa on April 22 -26, 2013 in collaboration with National Coordination REDD and the Regional Post-graduate Training School of Integrated Management of Tropical Forests and Lands (ERAIFT). The objective of the workshop was to train 24 participants from ERAIFT, the Ministry of Environment, Nature Conservation and Tourism (MECNT), the Ministry of Planning, University of Kinshasa and civil society in the use of a software tool to analyze the total costs of REDD+ activities in DRC. The last day was dedicated to demonstrate the results to a broader public.
The 'REDD+ Cost Elements Assessment Tool' (RCEAT) has been jointly developed by the FCPF, the World Bank Institute, and UN-REDD (UNDP) since 2010. It is based on the Opportunity Costs of REDD+ Manual, a series of country studies in Tanzania, DRC and Colombia and regional workshops. The purpose of the tool is to provide REDD+ project or program planers with an economic tool to assess all relevant REDD+ cost elements (opportunity, implementation, transaction and institutional costs), as well as reference emissions and REDD+ related emissions reductions in a consistent way and to quantify the total abatement costs of the proposed activity.
The tool and associated user manual (both English and French) will be available soon.
Workshop documents (in French language) are available below.
