Efficient and Effective Safeguards Assessment and Implementation for a Climate-Smart Forest Economy

Part II: Safeguards for a Sustainable Forest Economy


In this report, the applicability of traditional risk-based approaches for Issue Area prioritization is examined. We then develop a risk assessment matrix to accommodate the needs of CSFE safeguards risk classifications. Next, we explore the role of proxy data for more efficient Issue Area assessment, presenting a series of geographic indicators of relevance to many CSFE interventions. Last, we discuss strategies for navigating existing tools and guidance. We develop two templates to test the methods and guidance developed here on CSFE case studies.
