In an Open Letter, the Climate Change Round-table, a group of civil society organisations in El Salvador, demands that the government should do more on climate than “loss and damage and REDD+”.
Despite the criticisms of El Salvador’s REDD readiness process, the World Bank’s Forest Carbon Partnership Facility has accepted El Salvador’s Readiness Preparation Plan. Nevertheless, groups and activists in El Salvador continue to question the process.
Civil Society Organisations and Indigenous Peoples’ Organisations have written several letters about the World Bank’s Forest Carbon Partnership Facility process in El Salvador. Recently, researchers Yvette Aguilar, Maritza Erazo and Francisco Soto wrote a summary of the issues raised by REDD schemes in El Salvador.
On 23 May 2012, the Salvadoran National Indigenous Coordinating Council (CCNIS) wrote to Benoît Bosquet, coordinator of the World Bank’s Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF). The letter demands the rejection of the Readiness Preparation Proposal (R-PP) submitted by El Salvador’s Environment Ministry.
The Salvadoran Ecological Unit (UNES – Unidad Ecológica Salvadoreña) and other social organisations in El Salvador have written to Benoît Bosquet, the coordinator of the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) demanding the El Salvador’s R-PP is not approved.
