The USAID-funded Grassroots Equity and Enhanced Networks in the Mekong (GREEN Mekong) program recently published a manual training entitled “Improving grassroots equity in the forests and climate change context”. The manual aims to develop the knowledge and capacities of grassroots facilitators to conduct meaningful participatory processes that can improve social equity and inclusion in forest-based climate change mitigation policy frameworks, mechanisms and projects. Using innovative training approaches and methodologies grounded on experiential learning principles, this manual differs from typical REDD+ materials as it focuses on the ‘how' rather than the ‘what' of equity. It will help grassroots stakeholders to generate valuable opinions and positions about forests and climate change related developments. This manual will be translated into all Mekong region languages for wider use by grassroots actors.
