Host Country: Lao PDRREDD+ Demonstration Study (REDD+)

REDD+ in Luang Prabang Province

Implementing Entity: Mitsubishi UFJ Research and Consulting,
Japan Forest Technology Association and Marubeni Cooperation

Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

This study aims to monitor the effectiveness of REDD+ activities and quantify the amount of GHG emissions reductions by REDD+ activities in a part of Phonxay District, Luang Prabang Province (30,000ha), a location with severe deforestation and forest degradation mainly due to shifting cultivation.
REDD+ activities will be implemented based on JICA's activities (e.g. introduction of alternative livelihoods) and will be promoted by participatory methods with local people.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

Approximately 120,000 tCO2/year

  • Reference CO2 emissions: 285,000 t-CO2/year
    ⇒ GHG emission will be continued according to historical trend.
  • Project CO2 emissions: 165,000 t-CO2/year
    ⇒ For improving forest management system and introducing alternative livelihoods, deforestation and forest degradation will be reduced.
