Capacity Building Materials on REDD+ for Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities
Capacity-building of indigenous and local communities and their organizations is widely recognized as a key foundation for securing the opportunities that REDD+ may provide and addressing its risks, contributing to more equitable and sustainable REDD+ initiatives.
This guide summarizes a range of training manuals and modules, most of which have been developed specifically for indigenous peoples and local communities.
As WWF programs engage with communities and their organizations to introduce information on REDD+ and build capacity for peoples’ participation in development of REDD+ programs – in field areas as well as at sub national and national levels – this resource guide seeks to:
• Share information and links to existing capacity-building materials, especially those developed by and/or for indigenous peoples and local communities;
• Provide information on international indigenous networks and support groups that are working on training of trainers and other capacity-building initiatives, and may offer opportunities for partnership, and
• Identify initial lessons and recommendations for WWF programs engaging in capacity-building activities with indigenous peoples and local communities.
