Gabon plans to conduct its Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) with a Technology Action Plan (TAP), in view of the implementation of its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC). Gabon has never initiated the process of carrying out this assessment before the development of its NDC, which is one of the new operational requirements to accelerate its implementation.
Technology transfer will have impact toward reducing vulnerability of the population hence increased resilience to climate change and well as steering the country towards a low carbon development path.
. Gabon commits to reduce GHG emissions by at least 50 percent from baseline scenario emissions in 2025. The commitment could be extended to 2030 and 2050 based on additional studies that will be carried out by COP21. The commitment is to be achieved excluding carbon stocks from forests from the target. Gabon also submitted annexes describing land-use change, flaring from the oil industry, energy, other GHG emissions such as waste, adaptation, and financing.
This report presents lessons learned from readiness activities in the Republic of Congo towards reducing emissions from deforestation and degradation and the role of conservation, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks in developing countries (REDD+). The report reveals progress in technical and scientific capacity building and institutional strengthening.
This publication is a contribution to the ongoing debate on the design of national strategies to reduce deforestation and forest degradation while contributing to the wellbeing of forest-dependent communities. It is the result of a South-South exchange in 2011, which brought together key decision-makers from the Congo Basin, Madagascar and Brazil to learn from Brazil’s community forest management experience.
