Objective:

This NAMA aims to advance the implementation of the country's Platform for the Generation and Trading of Forest Carbon Credits (PBCCh).

Activities: (2013 - 2017)
This NAMA includes  the development of pilot sites that will be established in different types of forests and lands suitable to forestation. These pilot units will be the first to generate units for trading under the PBCCh. These pilots will include improvements in land titling processes, the identification and implementation of more appropriate forest management techniques, the generation of sub‐national reference levels and MRV systems, among others issues related to forestry carbon projects.  

The IDB has provided funding to supports measures to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation by reducing open access to natural forests; fostering sustainable rural development; promoting economic activities to foster forest protection and conservation and research, impact evaluations and capacity building to improve understanding of policies that seek to reduce emissions from deforestation.

Impact and MRV

No Data Available.png
Cumulative GHG reductions: 42 MtCO2e
Mitigative capacity:

CONAF estimates that the total cumulative capture of emissions that will result from the full implementation of the National Forestry and Climate Change Strategy from 2013 to 2020 will be approximately 42 Mt CO2e. The implementation of this Strategy includes the development and implementation of the Platform for the Generation and Trading of Forest Carbon Credits in Chile. It is possible that some of the carbon credits generated and traded under the (PBCCh) will be sold internationally, which will be accounted for in Chile´s national pledge from here to 2020.    "CONAF estimates that the total cumulative capture of emissions that will result from the full implementation of the National Forestry and Climate Change Strategy from 2013 to 2020 will be approximately 42 Mt CO2e.

Co-benefits:

Social: Information has not been provided
Economic: Through the implementation of this NAMA, the Government of Chile will be facilitating the creation of an economic alternative for owners of degraded land, mainly small and medium‐size ones, which in turn will result in a new impetus to the forestry activity in the country, thereby increasing rates of afforestation and restoration of natural forests due to a greater economic expectation of owners based on this new commercial option. At the same time, the establishment and enhancement of forest resources in the country will result in the generation of an environmental asset that will be a key part of the national strategies of mitigation of GHG emissions. The implementation of this NAMA will also serve to lower  the financial barriers faced by owners who wish to participate in the forestry business in general and in carbon

markets.

Environmental: Support of biodiversity

MRV Framework:

The MRV system being developed for the National Strategy will also include indicators related to biodiversity, gender equality, adaptation issues, among others.
