1 DEFINING COMPONENTS OF NATIONAL REDD+ FINANCIAL PLANNING WORKSHOP ON BUILDING MULTI- SOURCE REDD+ FINANCING STRATEGIES Antigua, Guatemala July 17 and 18, 2014

2 Objec'ves of REDD+ Financial Planning Financial Planning cri'cal to REDD+ Program implementa'on Provides valuable feedback on evalua'ng the different strategic op'ons as a way to improve to the overall REDD+ Na=onal Strategy The Financial Planning Process will iden'fy and quan'fy: Financial Implica?ons for Implemen?ng REDD+ Strategy Addi=onal budgetary expenditures that the REDD+ Na=onal Strategy will need to incur from an administra've, policy, and program level Financial projec'ons for each component of the REDD+ Program implementa=on Expenditures that a country and its land managers must incur to effec'vely implementa'on land use change Profitable and sustainable land use change ac'vi'es that produce emission reduc=ons/removals and generate agricultural and forest related revenue Addi'onal funding required and suitability of mul'ple sources to create long- term financial sustainability The financial planning process represents an opportunity to perform a competitive analysis of the land use sector, as well as, a practical and realistic financial evaluation of strategic options to be promoted by the REDD+ National Program Page 2

3 Terms used in for financial planning Speaking a Common Language Na'onal REDD+ Program refers to the implementa=on of the policies, programs and ac=vi=es that deliver on the Na=onal REDD+ Strategy. Strategic op'ons is a common term used, we use this term to refer to those polices, programs and ac=vi=es that have been priori=zed within the Na=onal REDD+ Strategy. These strategic op'ons could change over =me as the financial and opera=onal feasibility of different op=ons is accessed A four level framework was developed to disaggregate REDD+ Programs into units that can be properly modeled Disaggrega?on Key to Managing Financial Planning Groups common types of ac=vi=es and implementers Support component based modeling with ability to aggregate projec=ons at the Na=onal Program level Model stress tes=ng and scenarios can be performed on components Viable funding sources iden=fied, amracted and effec=vely nego=ated Page 3

4 Level 1 REDD+ Administra'on Programs Need to be Unbundled Incremental/marginal expenditures that the REDD+ Na=onal Strategy leading ins=tu=ons will need to incur to administrator the REDD+ Program Level 2 REDD+ Na'onal Policies Expenditures that the country must incurred to design, develop, communicate and implement policies that effec=vely support implementa=on of REDD+ Program Level 3 REDD+ Subprograms Expected costs of implementa=on of the programma=c framework of ac=ons that Governments provide directly to promote field level implementa=on of land use change Subprogram is used to avoid the confusion with the use of Na=onal REDD + Program which includes all levels Level 4 REDD+ Ac'vi'es The Complexity of REDD+ Programs Requires Applying a Financial Planning Framework REDD+ land use ac=ons, which are the strategically iden=fied to promote emission reduc=ons and whose the technical and financial feasible can be assessed Page 4

5 Mapping REDD+ Components to Levels Financial is Planning Performed at Each Level for Each Scale, Scope and Type of Interven?on and then Aggregated by Implementer and for the Na?onal REDD+ Program Illustrative Interventions REDD Program Components Financial Planning Level REDD+ Administration REDD+ Strategy, Finance and Legal Framework REDD+ Intervention Types Policy Reform Land Use Planning Commodity / Extractive Policy REDD+ PROGRAM Administratio POLICY AND SUBPROGRAM LEVELS LEVEL 1 REDD+ Program Administration LEVEL 2 REDD+ Policies FINANCIAL PLANNING REDD+ Intervention Types Governance Capacity Increases Management Plans Tenure Recognition Sectorial incentives, subsidies, guarantees, insurances PES Supply Chain Improvements REDD+ Intervention Types Forest Patrolling Agriculture Productivity Rural Energy/ Cook Stoves NTF Development POLICY AND SUBPROGRAM LEVELS LAND USE ACTIVITIES TO PRODUCE EMISSION REDUCTIONS/ REMOVALS LEVEL 3 - REDD+ Programs Programs that impact land managers to implement REDD+ LEVEL 4 - REDD+ Activities FINANCIAL PLANNING Fire Control Page 5

6 Level 1 REDD+ Administra'on Examples of Costs Startup Readiness prepara=on process design Administra=on and management of the prepara=on process Staffing REDD+ focal point office and personnel at key government ins=tu=ons func=oning as implemen=ng partners Na=onal REDD+ Strategy development Fundraising management for readiness and startup process Reference level study and development (na=onal, subna=onal, mul=ple jurisdic=ons) MRV system and protocol design and implementa=on Safeguards REDD+ na=onal framework development Stakeholder communica=on and engagement Framework law and/or norms that support REDD+ Program administra=ve func=ons Design, communica=on and engagement to ins=tu=onal and benefit sharing arrangements for technical, administra=ve and financial management of REDD+ na=onal program Development of ER- PIN and ER- PD Ac=vity registra=on and ER registry system setup Crea=ng new ins=tu=ons, programs or departments within government agencies On- going Ins=tu=onal arrangements advisory and legal management Benefit sharing arrangements Transac=onal and Fundraising management Communica=ons of REDD+ Program at the na=onal and interna=onal level with key stakeholders of the REDD+ na=onal program Na=onal Strategy monitoring and repor=ng Establishment of emission accoun=ng processes, data collec=on and technology plavorm Safeguards accomplishment, guidance, advisory and monitoring, On- going stakeholder consulta=on, guidance, advisory and monitoring, Na=onal emission reduc=ons repor=ng and verifica=on Registra=on and issuance of emission reduc=ons Coordina=on with na=onal registry and REDD+ projects nested on issuances Page 6

7 Policies are: Level 2 REDD+ Na'onal Policies New or improved and related to land use sectors and reducing emissions and/or removals Created in concordance with na=onal/subna=onal condi=ons and basic condi=ons for economic development Iden=fied through REDD+ Na=onal Strategy development Are promoted through REDD+ Subprogram and Ac=vi=es Policies may have: Direct link to producing emission reduc=ons Opportunity costs Relate to specific Subprograms that promote land use change Ac=vi=es Financial Planning includes REDD+ Policy Budgets Created by Scale/Scope Costs for implementa=on and enforcement for leading na=onal implementa=on government agency at the central na=onal office, their regional offices and local agencies Modeling performed at na=onal and subna=onal scales Modeling for different sectoral scopes Page 7

8 Level 3 REDD+ Subprograms REDD+ Subprograms are the main components of the REDD+ strategy Consistent to the REDD+ Policies considered in the REDD+ Na=onal Strategy Not policies, nor administra=ve processes, rather all government support provided directly to promote field based REDD+ Ac=vi=es Support priority produc=ve sectors to create locally appropriate produc=ve/ market condi=ons and facilita=ng finance Financial Planning, main cost components Government Programs to Drive Land Use Change Technical assistance to improve capacity of government field staff to promote REDD+ Ac=vi=es Inputs, technical assistance, finance provided to land managers for REDD+ Ac=vi=es Resources for enforcement of forest management laws and conserva=on REDD+ specific field support (e.g. technology transfer services, communica=ons, stakeholder consulta=on, safeguard monitoring, and implementa=on support) Page 8

9 Level 4 REDD+ Ac'vi'es Priori'zed REDD+ Ac'vi'es iden'fied through defined process The country should focuses its Na=onal Strategy on land use Ac=vi=es that are financially feasible to ensure adop=on Financial results of REDD+ Ac=vi=es should have a posi=ve impact in terms of sustainable economic development to the country Analysis of financial feasibility provides the strategic opportunity to improve design of REDD+ Na=onal Strategy Financial Planning Feasibility Assessment of REDD+ Ac'vi'es The Cornerstone of Delivering Emission Reduc?ons Evaluated in accordance to na=onal and global metrics, since countries depend on local, regional and interna=onal capital to invest in REDD+ Ac=vi=es Key metrics Annual net cash flow of the land use ac=vity/npv of cash flow Land use ac=vity rate of return (IRR) Breakeven for land manager Investors rate of return Payback period for investors Page 9

10 Making Ac'vi'es Financially Feasible Government may need to increase financial results of land use Ac'vi'es, so they are investable and/or equal cost of opportunity of land managers: Financial condi=ons and cash flow shows need of access to structured finance, using for example special funds for equity, debt finance, upfront payments, Addi=onal Policies that allow for improved financial performance of REDD+ Ac=vi=es Incen=ves, tax exemp=ons, etc. Government Support May be Necessary Change in emission reduc=on benefit sharing New Subprograms to establish collateral funds and/or specific propose facili=es as, guarantee collaterals, insurances, technical assistance, specific technology transfer, etc. Improvements in value chain condi=ons such as transport (roads or other transport system), licensing, or other investment needed that can be done by governments Governments should create strategic alliances with specialized private enterprises, private investors, local financial institutions, NDBs, and multilateral/bilateral banks to create investable entities and new transaction structures that maximize the available funding for REDD+ Page 10
