Deadline: 04-May-2020 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.) Forestry

To enable capacity building of FCPF countries to mainstream gender in Emission Reductions Programs and REDD+ strategies, the World Bank Sustainable Climate Change Fund Management (SCCFM) unit is launching a study which is focused on understanding constraints and opportunities in legal and policy environments in each of the seventeen FCPF Carbon Fund countries and jurisdictions that affect womens land and forest tenure and their ability to exercise their rights in existing statutory and customary systems, how these rights can be affected by the Carbon Fund programs (Benefit Sharing Plans, Emission Reductions Programs), and what specifically is needed to protect and even strengthen these rights. The study is expected to provide practical recommendations on approaches for enhancing womens land and forest tenure rights within the REDD+ and FCPF context, at both the country level and project-specific jurisdiction level. It is expected that specific recommendations on required legislative changes and other recommendations, including on tools required to address these issues effectively in Carbon Fund countries and programs will be developed.

The study is expected to be conducted in 17 countries with ‘deep dives’ in at least 8 countries with field work (depending on the COVID 19 cicrcumstances).
