What is a Safeguard Information System?


The Safeguard Information System (SIS) is a domestic institutional arrangement responsible for providing information as to how the UNFCCC REDD+ safeguards are being addressed and respected in the context of the implementation of the proposed REDD+ actions.

The objective of a SIS, from the perspective of UNFCCC requirements, is to provide information that is accessible by all relevant stakeholders to demonstrate that the seven Cancun safeguards are being addressed and respected throughout REDD+ implementation.

Cambodia considers that the design of an SIS is an iterative undertaking, and its reporting objectives in this first phase are to relevant domestic stakeholders, the UNFCCC and the Green Climate Fund.
