Combating Deforestation in the Dominican Republic

Together with our consortium partner Sud-Austral, FFC advises the Dominican Republic Ministry of Environment in the development of strategies to reduce deforestation, forest degradation and to increase the carbon stocks from different land use activities concerning forestry, agriculture and livestock. In this context, FFC analyzes the interplay of direct and indirect causes for forest degradation by focusing on socio-economic and biogeographical factors as well as regulatory mechanisms and institutional weak points that may have adverse effects on forest loss and landscape degradation. Thereby, the ministry is supported in the adaptation of public policies, laws and programs that provide incentives for public and private stakeholders to engage in mitigation measurements that reduce deforestation and forest degradation. Further, FFC assists by identifying appropriate forests sites for the implementation of REDD+ projects that fit respective criteria in terms of forest management and CO2 mitigation.
