New IUCN Gender & Forest-related case studies
The IUCN Global Gender Office would like to share nine new case studies related to gender and forests broadly. This new information has been shared and promoted at COP 21 in Paris this week and next. You may find some of this latest information useful at COP 21 and beyond.
Gender & REDD+: A series of six geographically diverse case studies on gender mainstreaming and women’s empowerment through REDD+
3. REFACOF, African Women’s Network for Community Management of Forests
Paving the way for gender-responsive FLR: Three case studies highlighting possible entry points for mainstreaming gender in FLR.
We welcome your feedback on these case studies and hope that these examples are useful for your work.

REDD-PAC series of regional, national and sub-national spatial analyses for REDD+ strategies and land use policies
UNEP-WCMC announces the completion of a series of regional, national and sub-national scale spatial analyses to support the design of efficient, effective and environmentally relevant REDD+ strategies and land use policies.
In collaboration with global and regional partners, UNEP-WCMC has worked with decision-makers and technical specialists in Africa (the Congo Basin and Uganda), Latin America (Peru) and Asia (China, the Philippines, and Vietnam) to develop mapping tailored to the specific needs of each context.
The mapping can be used to assist decision makers in planning for REDD+ and other land use in ways that generate multiple benefits, such as biodiversity and social benefits and climate change adaptation.
It can also help to explore potential contributions of REDD+ actions to meeting other international policy commitments, such as the Aichi Biodiversity Targets. A full set of reports on this work, one for each country (or region), is now published and available to download.
The work for the reports forms part of the REDD-PAC project (www.redd-pac.org), which aims to develop technical solutions and capacity for designing efficient, effective and environmentally relevant REDD+ strategies and land use policies.
It is a collaborative project with the International Institute of Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), the Brazilian National Institute for Space Research (INPE) and the Central African Forestry Commission (COMIFAC).
The overall project is modelling land use change in Brazil and the Congo Basin to support national and regional REDD+ policy development.
The final report in the series highlights the methodological considerations and links between mapping and land use modelling; illustrated with examples from the work in Brazil.

New report – Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Integration: Achieving a better balance between the economic, social and environmental dimensions
It has been mandated that the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) currently under negotiation at the United Nations should achieve an appropriate balance between the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development.
As a timely contribution to the post-2015 development agenda negotiations taking place at UN Headquarters in New York this week, Stakeholder Forum, in a study commissioned by the German Council for Sustainable Development, has examined integration in the proposed SDGs.
The draft set of SDGs presented in the final report of the United Nation’s Open Working Group (OWG) include most of the highest priority objectives of the world’s economic, social and environmental agendas and in that sense achieves a degree of balance. The individual goals are not, however, so well balanced within themselves. Some are clearly primarily economic goals, others social and some environmental.
Using stakeholder proposals, this paper puts forward options for building upon the proposed SDGs and achieving better balance of the three dimensions of sustainable development within the goals.
SDG’s and forests | Global Landscape Forum session today + two new reports
Dear AllWe are pleased to let you know about two new reports on SDG’s and forests which are now available to download, please see details below.IIED is also co-hosting a discussion at the Global Landscapes Forum
in Lima today on how forest landscapes can score Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
. And if you can’t attend the session you can still have your say! Follow coverage of the session via @IIED– and join the global discussion by giving your views on key questions
and posing questions of your own. New publications:Sustainable Development Goals and forests: Integrating perspectives, priorities and experience from Africa
The UN’s Open Working Group (OWG) proposed draft sustainable development goals (SDGs) in July 2014. It is the purpose of this report to integrate the perspectives, priorities and experiences from Africa in helping to ensure that the goals gain the right contribution from forests while optimally fostering their sustainability. The report assesses the OWG zero draft and proposes introducing an approach which, if adopted, could ensure that the goals gain the right contribution from forests while optimally fostering their sustainability.
