UN-REDD Benefits and Risks Tool (BeRT)

Abstract:

The UN-REDD Programme, which supports ecosystem restoration as a tool to sequester carbon, developed the Benefits and Risks Tool (BeRT). The BerRT is designed to support countries in identifying benefits and risks associated with REDD+ actions, as well as relevant Policies, Laws and Regulations. The tool also supports countries developing Safeguard Information Systems (SIS) for implementing REDD+ activities. REDD+ activities, as defined by the UNFCCC, includes the enhancement of forest carbon stocks, which may be implemented through restoration interventions.

Relevance for the Short Term Action Plan for Ecosystem Restoration:
The BerRT, in line with activity B1, is designed to support countries in identifying benefits and risks associated with REDD+ actions in the context of the Cancun safeguards (B5), as well as relevant Policies, Laws and Regulations.
