|Consultant for Comparative Study of Multi-Stakeholder Initiatives in Peru||CIFOR||Peru||11/30/2017|
In 2009, CIFOR started a multi-donor funded Global Comparative Study on REDD+ (GCS-REDD+) in 12 countries. GCS-REDD+ is a multi-year global comparative research project on first and second-generation REDD+ activities in selected countries across Asia, Africa and Latin America. This third phase of the project consists of 5 modules: policies and measures at the national level (Module 1), assessing the performance of sub-national and private initiatives (Module 2), monitoring, measurement, reporting and verification (MMRV) (Module 3), integrating REDD with development goals at the landscape level (Module 4) and knowledge sharing (Module 5). The overall outcome of the project is: REDD+ policy-makers and practitioner communities have access to and utilize the information, analysis and tools needed to design and implement REDD+ results, create enabling conditions, and assess to which degree REDD+ has delivered carbon- effective, cost-efficient and equitable carbon and non-carbon benefits.
The aim of the research in module 4 is to understand how REDD+ activities and outcomes can be embedded in the broader development agenda. The project will explore multi-stakeholder initiatives (MSIs) aimed at improving land use (e.g. climate mitigation, conservation initiatives, Payment for Environmental Services) to determine what factors affect the equity outcomes for forest-based communities and effectiveness outcomes regarding land use change. Peru is one of four country studies that will inform research on the topic.

|Kleinhans Fellowship For Community Forestry Research||Rainforest Alliance||Latin America||02/28/2018|
The Rainforest Alliance has a long history of working with forest communities that have established their own locally managed enterprises, providing them with training and technical assistance on sustainable forestry practices, value-added processing, business administration, market access and more. Recognizing that sound scientific inquiry can help to guide technical assistance for local development, our Kleinhans Fellowship supports research that seeks solutions to the challenges faced by the community forestry model.
The fellowship provides funds for research that is oriented toward solving real-world problems as defined by CFEs. Moreover, the planning, implementation and dissemination of research results will be carried out in participatory manner to ensure that it has practical value for communities and helps to inform their action plans.
The Kleinhans Fellowship provides a two-year stipend of 20,000 USD per year to support research that addresses one of the following topics:
The Rainforest Alliance is most interested in research that could potentially be applied to the ongoing work of our TREES program which trains communities and small- and medium-sized enterprises to harvest and manufacture forest and non-timber forest products in a sustainable manner, and market these goods to responsible businesses and consumers around the world. Toward that end, the geographic scope of the Kleinhans Fellowship is restricted to Latin America, with a preference for the following locations:
