DRaft Proposal for the Second Phase of the Community-based REDD+ initiative (CBR+). Its main objective was to enhance the engagement and inclusion of indigenous peoples and forest communities in national REDD+ processes, thus providing grassroots experiences and perspectives into national policy for REDD+. CBR+ was implemented in the period 2014-2017 and has received praise from a wide range of stakeholders: from indigenous organisations themselves to national governments, and to the UN-REDD executive board – whose members have proposed and discussed a potential new phase, which this note explores while scoping funding. In its first phase, the CBR+ initiative was conducted in 6 pilot countries, which were UN-REDD partner countries with full-fledged national REDD+ processes: Cambodia, DRC, Nigeria, Panama, Paraguay and Sri Lanka. It was financed with USD 4 million from the Government of Norway through the UN-REDD Programme. It was implemented by UNDP, combining the technical support of its Climate & Forests Team and the existing operational architecture of the UNDP/GEF Small Grants Programme (SGP), which also provided matching grant funds. In total, CBR+ financed and helped implement over 100 community projects, as well as supporting policy dialogue, capacity building and knowledge management towards inclusive and rights-responsive REDD+ action in the beneficiary countries (see Annex 1 for a synthesis of CBR+ delivery, and Annex 2 for a selected list of CBR+ information and knowledge documentation).
