Pro­ject descrip­tion: The rese­arch pro­ject, fun­ded by the Inter­na­tio­nal Cli­mate Initia­tive (IKI) of the Federal Minis­try for the Envi­ron­ment, Nature Con­ser­va­tion, Buil­ding and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), aims to deve­lop part­nerships bet­ween com­mu­nities and the pri­vate sec­tor to res­tore degra­ded forests in Laos, Thai­land and Viet­nam, and thus impro­ving the live­lihood of the rural people. Locally adap­ted busi­ness models bet­ween small­hol­ders and the pri­vate sec­tor are inves­ti­ga­ted, sup­por­ted by NGOs, local govern­ments and uni­ver­si­ties. By using the cli­mate policy tool of "Redu­cing Emis­si­ons from Defo­re­sta­tion and Forest Degra­da­tion" (REDD +), rese­arch is plan­ned, e.g., on forest fire reduc­tion, pro­duc­tion, har­ves­ting and pro­ces­sing of dura­ble wood and bam­boo pro­ducts, as well as repla­ce­ment of fos­sil fuels with forest bio­mass pro­ducts. Les­sons from the pro­ject shall be incor­po­ra­ted into policy recom-men­da­ti­ons, know­ledge and trai­ning pro­ducts, and publi­ca­ti­ons.
