Details for Emerging Legal Frameworks for REDD+ in Melanesia - Synthesis Report

Name:Emerging Legal Frameworks for REDD+ in Melanesia - Synthesis Report

The purpose of this Synthesis Paper is to summarize the findings from our detailed Country Papers which describe and analyse the emerging legal frameworks for REDD+ in each country.

Solomon Islands in particular has a very outdated forest law which urgently requires repeal or amendment if it is to facilitate transition from timber exploitation to conservation and sustainable forest management.

A notable omission in the legal frameworks of all Melanesian countries is the absence of land use planning laws.

Prepared by Lisa Ogle, on behalf of SPC/GIZ Regional Project ‘Climate Protection through Forest Conservation in Pacific Island Countries’.
