Papua New Guinea REDD+ Readiness Preparation Proposal (R-PP) – Version 6 Working Draft
August, 2012. Department of National Planning and Monitoring. Submitted to Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF), World Bank. 154 pages
According to the R-PP the Govt of PNG is ensuring multi-stakeholder participation and input through a number of Technical Working Groups. The multi-stakeholder REDD+ TWG and its sub-working groups act as fora to coordinate and progress REDD+ activities (REDD+ readiness and pilot activities) with the participation of nongovernment stakeholders. TWGs comprise GoPNG departments, the private sector, civil society and development partners to ensure that a broad range of perspectives are considered in the OCCD‘s work. Three technical working groups on REDD+, Low-Carbon Growth, and Adaptation have been meeting regularly since Q1/2010 to guide GoPNG‘s work on climate change, including the preparation of the CCDS. A fourth technical working group on consultation was approved by the NCCC in September 2010 to guide the OCCD‘s national and provincial consultation process.
Papua New Guinea currently does not have a feedback and grievance mechanism (FGM) specifically designed for REDD+. The country has developed a Terms of Reference for a Grievance Mechanism Study to be conducted specifically for REDD+ that will take into consideration existing mechanisms at the national, provincial and district level that could accommodate this process.
The design of the REDD+ FGM will not conflict or compromise existing FGMS for other resource sectors such as mining and forestry. There will also be a further need for the national government to incorporate a budget and work plan activity for this study to be conducted.
Through this REDD+ FGM Study, Papua New Guinea will gain understanding and insight into how the REDD+ Grievance Mechanism of PNG should be structured and the feasibility and desirability of using existing mechanisms as trial platforms. It will also provide the country with an assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the community mechanisms for raising and addressing issues to feed into the overall REDD+ readiness process filtering into the provinces.
