Monitoring, evaluation, learning and impact assessment (MELIA)

In Vietnam, research on women’s participation in payments for environmental services (PES) and REDD+ examined the extent to which national forestry, PES, and REDD+ policies address gender issues and the level of women’s participation in decision-making. FTA researchers shared their findings with key partners and end users, nationally and internationally. Our recommendations informed the national guidelines for gender mainstreaming in PES policies, and have been incorporated in the UN-REDD planning and the guidelines on “The Business Case for Mainstreaming Gender in REDD+.” This was one of 10 research projects selected and presented at the CGIAR International Conference on “Closing the gender gap in farming under climate change: New knowledge for renewed action”.
