The PhD and masters’ research projects are aligned to the research gaps identified and articulated in the Ugandan Readiness Preparation Proposal (RPP) (most specifically), and other important themes on REDD+. These include: developing tools and methodologies for measuring, reporting and verifying the effects of REDD-Plus Strategy on GHG emissions and other multiple benefits and, to monitor the drivers of deforestation and forest degradation as well as other variables relevant to the implementation of REDD-Plus Strategy defining and developing a system for assessing key social and environmental risks and potential impacts of REDD-Plus Strategy options and implementation framework developing a system for estimating the historic forest cover change greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and uptake from deforestation and forest degradation and the other REDD-Plus activities and making projections of emissions in future, and determining the potential benefits and risks associated with REDD+ initiatives when implemented Identification of drivers of deforestation and forest degradation Identification of Transparent and effective Governance systems for REDD+ Determination of payment mechanisms for villages, nations etc. Determination of Carbon-biodiversity-resilience relationships Determination of Ecosystems services: crop pollination and forest conservation Determination of Co-benefits of REDD+ implementation Determination of Allometric carbon equations and production of carbon map of Uganda
