A major objective of both processes – Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) and Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) – is to approach their respective issues holistically, taking into account social, economic and ecological issues. The project “Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) approaches to foster Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) and Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) interactions” (SAFARI) collects experiences gained during the implementation of the FLEGT and REDD+ initiatives in selected partner countries and deducts lessons learned from these experiences. SAFARI builds further on existing studies on the differences and commonalities and potential linkages and synergies between REDD+ and FLEGT and other international, forest-related instruments. The overall objective of this project is to strengthen possible links and interactions between the holistic SFM concept and REDD+ and FLEGT policy processes. The project identifies how a holistic SFM concept interlinks and supports REDD+ and FLEGT initiatives; analyzes their current and possible future impacts and foster their operability on all levels; and demonstrates the multiple benefits of SFM.
