Nakau Methodology Framework
The Nakau Methodology Framework and Forest Carbon technical specifications module was developed for the Drawa Forest Carbon Project in Fiji (but could be implemented else where) by Live and Learn Environmental Education (LLEE) and Carbon Partnership. This set of methodologies guides LLEE’s voluntary payment for ecosystem services (PES) programme – The Nakau Programme.
Under The Nakau Programme, PES units are created by delivering measurable and additional forest protection/enhancement outcomes. The purpose of the Nakau Programme is to provide a financing mechanism to cover the costs of forest protection and enhancement including opportunity costs to landowners who give up the right to log and/or deforest. REDD+ is one approach to PES included in the Nakau Programme.
