  • The Government of Norway’s Internationa... - norad.no
    video Norway s International Climate and Forest Intiative Since its inception in April 2008 the Climate and Forest Initiative has established a series of partnerships with key forest countries and contributed to significant advances in the development of a REDD mechanism under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change UNFCCC A REDD mechanism under the UNFCCC could change the economic logic in favor of the global climate and forests Such a regime must provide results based predictable and adequate funding streams for reduced emissions from deforestation and forest degradation The Norwegian Climate and Forest Initiative has the following key objectives To contribute to the inclusion of REDD reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from forests in developing countries To contribute to early actions for measurable emission reductions from deforestation and forest degradation To promote the conservation of primary forests due to their particular importance as carbon stores and for their biological diversity As an overarching goal all these efforts should promote sustainable development and the reduction of poverty REDD is not simply an issue of improved forest management it is a fundamental development choice The climate change mitigation potential of REDD will never be realized unless it offers a more attractive and viable development option than the destructive uses of the forests Watch video Main tracks To achieve its objectives Norway is pursuing four main tracks Playing an active role in the international negotiations under the UNFCCC seeking both to identify innovative solutions and to help create consensus around those solutions Entering into large scale partnerships with key forest countries to demonstrate that real action on a national level is possible and to encourage large scale emission reductions even before a REDD mechanism is agreed upon under the UNFCCC Contributing to the design and establishment of an integrated architecture of multilateral

  • Ekstern gjennomgang av Norads informasjonsstøtte - norad.no
    klart definerte mål som ikke nødvendigvis imøtekommes av den fragmentering som vektingen av mangfold så langt har ledet til Gitt spekteret av organisasjoner og tiltak kombinert med mangelen på nullpunktsanalyse og definerte suksessindikatorer for ordningen er det utfordrende å skulle si noe samlet sett om informasjonsstøtteordningens resultater I sum er det ingen tvil om at mottakerne av Norads informasjonsstøtte arbeider iherdig med å omsette midlene etter beste evne og at ordningen definitivt bidrar til økt aktivitet landet over gjennom den store mengden kurs seminarer reiser lokallagsarbeid og så videre som støttes Hvorvidt ordningen bidrar til økt kunnskap og engasjement i befolkningen som helhet slik man har uttalt ambisjon om er dermed mye mer uklart Det ser ut til å være et misforhold mellom ordningens ambisjon om å kommunisere komplekse tema på en nyansert og spennende måte samtidig som befolkningen selv rapporterer dalende interesse for slike tema og mediedekningen av mange oppleves som forenklet og ofte tilspisset på dette området Fordi mangfold i praksis har blitt et førende prinsipp for ordningen har muligheten til å utnytte skalafordeler av midlene eller til å tenke strategisk rundt hva man kan oppnå i form av tematisk fokus folkelig engasjement eller holdningsendring hos utvalgte målgrupper hvis man ser porteføljen som helhet gått tapt Med en størrelsesorden på cirka 91 millioner kroner per år inkludert FN sambandet eller over 360 millioner kroner i en fireårsperiode er det åpenbart at man kan få mer ut av denne typen kommunikasjonsinvestering om man velger å rendyrke målet om nasjonal kunnskaps og engasjementsheving og prioriterer organisasjoner som har mulighet til å mobilisere bredt Det er i denne sammenhengen spesielt påfallende at mange av Norges mest folkelige forankrede institusjoner og organisasjoner eksempelvis kirkelige nettverk organisasjoner rettet mot skolen samt idrettsforbund og større lag og foreninger er forholdsvis svakt representert blant brukerne

  • Mid-Term Evaluation of the Clean Energy in Africa Programme of Naturvernforbundet (Friends of the Earth Norway) - norad.no
    and also to learn of the results and challenges that were faced Key findings The member networks have become influential through their demonstration projects and this recognition has seen them participate in national programmes and processes on energy and environment policy One of the most viable entry points into communities was through micro credit and savings groups and these have become some of the majority members of the networks and instruments for raising awareness about environment and energy issues The main achievements of the programme included the setting up and running of strong vibrant energy and environment networks in Mozambique and West Africa The national network FEDESMO in Mozambique has achieved legal status and is recognised by the government The director of renewable energy in the Ministry of Energy is the chairperson of the network In West Africa the achievements include the establishment of the JVE International secretariat which has representation in more than 22 African countries All networks are running successful energy and environment projects in their countries contributing to universal access to clean energy through improved cook stoves Challenges and constraints include the heavy reliance on Naturvernforbundet for funding of project activities posing a risk to sustainability and project implementation The current status where pilot demonstration projects on stoves micro PV systems and the establishment of standards are still under development is also a major challenge to goal achievement Constraints to market deployment of technologies include the high cost of products against low affordability and low awareness of improved cook stoves Production of the improved cook stoves is very well established in some places but has also met challenges as lack of adequate quality of soil Unsustainable and unabated extraction and utilisation of biomass still continues The demonstration of casamance kilns in Mozambique is still in infancy and its use is still low The need for improvement was evident in the area of technical skills in biogas construction and promotion in Mozambique There is no enabling environment through lack of policies and where they exist implementation has been weak policy In Togo Ivory Coast and Ghana the members have not adequately addressed policy issues on sustainable use of biomass There are emerging lessons and best practice cases from the programme in all countries that can be shared among networks However there is limited knowledge packaging and dissemination It was evident that there was need to review membership registration especially the membership drive in Mozambique which was noticeably limited The need was also evident for the recreation of value for membership so that they do not see their participation as an incentive to gain funding but as an avenue for additional programme funding Recommendations The following recommendations are provided to Naturvernforbundet and the programme partners to influence the policies and decisions of governments Leverage funding to sustain network activities beyond Naturvernforbundet funding is critical for the networks Financing from Naturvernforbundet should be used as seed funding by the networks to leverage additional funds and also diversify the resource base

  • Mid-term evaluation of Naturvernforbundet’s Oilwatch Africa programme - norad.no
    evaluation involved review of relevant documents such as annual reports programme reports and newsletters supplied by Naturvernforbundet and member organizations of the Oilwatch Africa Programme interviews with staff members of partner organizations local community people representatives of government bodies oil companies and other important stakeholders such as journalists As well it involved field visits to programme areas in Nigeria Uganda Tanzania and Ghana Key findings Influencing international processes in order to check harmful practices and policies of corporations and governments is a crucial part of OWA s mandate So far it has made considerable progress During the period under review OWA established contact with the Economic Community of West African States ECOWAS Such link was lacking prior Meanwhile there exist opportunities for constructive and environmentally useful engagements for example with the African Union SADC ECOWAS and multilateral institutions like the World Bank Partners are yet to take full advantage of these opportunities Oilwatch Africa main member countries recorded varied levels of successes in terms of changes within the period under review This was noticed in the intensity of alliances challenging energy extractive companies and governments over oil and mining related environmental social economic livelihoods and political problems OWA made impressive progress in ensuring local participation in environmental impact assessment processes and joint investigative visits which serve the interest of the environment and livelihoods Now community leaders in Calaba and Ikarama in Nigeria can alone demand inclusion or participation in these processes whenever they feel denied This means that they have been strengthened to challenge oil companies over oil related environmental issues and deprivations Although this is happening to a limited extent and with little good results the improvement is worthy of note Access to information from oil companies and governments has improved Among member organisations the huge cost of generating information did not hinder access Instead information sharing especially on oil spill matters improved with increased capacity of local communities under the Host Community Network strategy HoCon However this has not happened across the board as the situation in Tanzania and Uganda shows that the rate of access to information from the government and oil companies is much slower Recommendations Strengthen OWA with more resources and capacity building for better engagement with policy and political decision makers at the regional and global multilateral fronts At least two workshops should be organised to address these issues Existing contacts with regional bodies such as ECOWAS SADC African Union and so on should be utilised for a more elaborate policy influence work Avenues for engagement with multilateral intuitions like the World Bank in pursuit of environmental protection and protection of livelihoods should be creatively sought Innovation or creativity is required to make OWA more responsive to problems associated with the petroleum industry livelihoods and environment OWA network members without resources for effective mobilisation of communities affected by fossil fuel energy extraction activities and use should be assisted to reach out better This could be achieved through regular joint activities at national regional and
