While REDD Plus provides a mechanism to reduce emissions and enhance removals of greenhouse gases, each participating country must develop its own national strategy that outlines how it intends to implement the frameworks and elements within REDD Plus. Malaysia’s National REDD Plus strategy was published in 2017, setting a goal of reducing emissions by 15 to 23 million tonnes of CO2 annually between 2016 and 2025. To achieve this, the National REDD Plus Strategy identifies three key objectives:

  • Promoting consistency and synergies in the implementation of climate change, forest and biodiversity related policies between national and state levels
  • Measuring, reporting and verifying (MRV) (link to Policies & Action Plans > Measurement, Reporting & Verification Framework) REDD Plus results as part of efforts to achieve Malaysia’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) under the Paris Agreement brokered by UNFCCC
  • Developing a sustainable financing mechanism for REDD Plus implementation in Malaysia The strategy also outlines the how REDD Plus will be implemented at the national and state levels, the roles of various stakeholders, and specific targets related to planned REDD Plus actions in the areas of:

 

  1. Reducing emissions from deforestation
  2. Reducing emissions from forest degradation
  3. Conservation of forest carbon stocks
  4. Enhancement of forest carbon stocks
  5. Sustainable management of forests
