Abstract

The National REDD+ Strategy (NRS) contributes effectively to a large part to the Climate Resilient Green Economy (CRGE) strategy and Ethiopia's greening targets in 2030, while maximizing national co-benefits thereby adding to the global climate change mitigation efforts through improving forest resource and land management. The mission of the NRS is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase carbon removals in the forest sector by implementing policies, laws and regulations, and increasing investments to enhance conservation of forest resources and forest restoration and by improving the functioning and capacity of national and sub-national institutions in order to realize the green growth vision of Ethiopia, and enhancing the associated benefits of biodiversity conservation, improved hydrological functions of landscapes and better livelihoods (Chap. 2).
