REDD-PAC: REDD+ Policy Assessment Center

The REDD-PAC project aims at developing technical know-how and capacity in designing efficient, effective and environmentally relevant REDD+ strategies and land use policies. The project was funded by Germany's International Climate Initiative and run from November 2011 to May 2016.

Main Results of the REDD-PAC Project

The main findings of the project were published in the article Soterroni et al. (2018) Future environmental and agricultural impacts of Brazil's Forest Code, Environmental Research Letters.

GLOBIOM-Brazil LUCC database and model scenarios

The results of the REDD-PAC project are available openly. They include a new land cover map for Brazil for years 2000 and 2010, based on a best combination of existing sources. A preview of some of the available datasets can be visualised below. They also include results of GLOBIOM-Brazil including projected land use changes and emissions from 2020-2050. The full content of the datasets is available as a WFS (Web Feature Service) in the following address (no password required):

The detailed description of the data in the WFS server is available in this webpage.

The description of data sets, the structure of the Globiom-Brazil model and results are available in the reports below. Modelling Land Use Change in Brazil:2000-2050 and results of GLOBIOM-Brazil including projected land use changes and emissions from 2020-2050

Project results for the Congo Basin.

For each pilot country plus the COMIFAC region the project produced short reports describing the key data, methods and results of REDD-PAC for the Congo Basin as well as an extensive technical report which provides more detail on projected land use changes and emissions from 2000-2030. Reports are available both in English and French
