Ethiopia - Oromia National Regional State Forested Landscape Project (English)

The development objective of the Oromia National Regional State Forested Landscape Project for Ethiopia is to improve the enabling environment for sustainable forest managementand investment in Oromia. The project has three components. First component, enabling investments will finance investment in PFM (including livelihoods support and selected nature-based community enterprise development) and reforestation in deforestation hotspots insites to be selected, as well as extension services and land-use planning statewide at state and local levels. Second component, enabling environment will finance complementary activities to improve the effectiveness andimpact of institutions, policies, marketing, BSM, and information (that is, strategiccommunication, MRV), and safeguards management at state and local levels. This component will enhance the enabling environment to help scale up and leverage action on the ground toreduce deforestation and forest degradation. Third component, emission reduction payments will be made only for emission reductions achieved during the ERPA period. However, interventions conducive to emission reductions can start at any time. ER payments will be delivered once results are achieved,verified by a third party, and formally reported to the Bank. In addition, the ER payments will not cover the full cost of implementing changes in landscape management. The ER payments will provide some return that offsets some costs of improving the landscape for the wider benefitof all.
