Structure and State of Progress

The ENCCRV follows a logical structure aligned with the requirements for an REDD+ focus of the UNFCCC incorporating 3 phases of development. The first Preparation involves the conceptual design of all the elements and interrelations. The second, Implementation of action steps. The third phase, Result-based Payments of implemented action steps.

The phases for the ENCCRV are summarized below:



Phase 1 Preparation:

During this phase, multiple studies, projects, and participative measures were completed to generate inputs to substantiate numerous initiatives, such as quantitative and qualitative analysis of deforestation devegetation, and vegetation resource degradation causes and difficulties to increase the carbon stock and other social services. >> More information here

Additionally, activities and action steps were identified for the implementation phase and progressed in the determination of emission reference levels, forest absorption, and xerophyte formations, simultaneously identifying gaps and remedy it. It will enable quantitative measurements of the performance action steps for emission reduction and carbon capture of native vegetation resource.

Simultaneously, the ENCCRV has progressed in the Plan for the Implementation of Social and Environmental Safeguards of Citizen Consultations, Indigenous Peoples Dialogue and Participation and Auto-evaluation of the ENCCRV. Progress in this plan has involved citizen participative measures, the inclusion of the Indigenous Peoples perspectives, gender mainstreaming, and other local communities. As such, the indicator framework for social and environmental services with which to measure the performance of the ENCCRV required the development of a technical base.

Phase 2 Implementation:

The Implementation phase for some of the action steps began in 2016, through the execution of projects in the field to evaluate technical and financial mechanisms, institutional arrangements, and strengthening of the capabilities developed in the Preparation phase. This will enable the generation of efficient management models to replicate and scale the activities and action steps to a national level, providing benefits to all communities involved with vegetation resources. Currently, implementation of action steps in most of the regions in the country involved in the ENCCRV has progressed.

Phase 3 Result-based Payments:

Once the first two phases are completed, the ENCCRV can begin the phase for Result-based payments, a process which CONAF has already begun to prepare capabilities for. This phase took into consideration reimbursements for the reduction and absorption of GHG emissions, evaluations to be based on standard technical methods and presented publicly.

General Goals:

  • Adaptation: Reduction of vulnerability associated with risk of land degradation through the sustainable management of vegetation resources in at least 264,000 hectares between 2017-2025. The contributions of reduced vulnerability are evaluated by biological diversity indicators, ecological services provisions such as the supply of waterways and water quality and soil productivity.
  • Mitigation: Reduction of GHG due to degradation and deforestation by 20% in 2015, based on emissions of calculated in the period 2001-2013, and enhancement of the capacity of vegetation resources as carbon stock.

  • Co-Benefits expected of implementation

    The ENCCRV is developing a methodological framework for co-benefits in all the national territory, which will be integrated into the SMM and Safeguard Information System (SIS, acronym in Spanish), to determine the rate of vulnerability reduction to climate change generated by implemented action steps.

    This framework enables the definition of possible attributes to measure the territory in a simple and effective manner, generating a protocol for implemented action step evaluation. The evaluation protocol gathers inputs from technical studies conducted by experts and CONAF professionals and participative measures of formulation and validation of the ENCCRV.

    The conceptual framework is in the process of validation to rate its applicability level in localized and national territories to determine the base of a system of public administration which will enable a cross-cutting follow-up action step contributions to vulnerability reduction. A framework for an indicator of social and environmental factors is being developed to provide information of co-benefits which will be permanently reported to the national and international community through the SIS. >> More Information here

    Benefits Distribution System (SDB)

    The ENCCRV framework has designed a Benefits Distribution System (SDB, acronym in Spanish) to equally and transparently distribute the benefits generated by action steps implemented between directly and indirectly involved stakeholders.

    The SDB contemplates the distribution of monetary and non-monetary benefits. Nonmonetary benefits are the positive impacts generated on a local level once the action steps of the ENCCRV have been implemented. For example, regulating land ownership and environmental education programs. Nonmonetary benefits will be promoted in the implementation phase of the ENCCRV, quantifying its impact in the number of people benefited and the quality provided by the cross-cutting connotation of the programs. >> More information here
