Project Description

According to bank documents, the Readiness Preparation Proposal (R-PP) prepared by the Government of Uruguay identifies the necessary activities to strengthen Uruguay's technical and institutional capacities to participate in a future REDD+ mechanism. The overall financial envelop needed for achieving REDD+ Readiness inUruguay has been estimated at US$ 6.47 million (as per the final version of the R-PP dated April 1st,2015), of which US$2.67 million are contribution from the Government. REDD+ is a new concept in Uruguay that aims to be inserted in land use decision making onwards. It is important to highlight that the FCPF support is limited to analytical studies, capacity building, and consultation processes at the national and sub-national levels and would not include any physical investment or the implementation of any REDD+ program on the ground.
