REDD+ after Cancun: Moving from negotiation to implementation Douala, Cameroon, May 10-12, 2011 - Workshop Report and Main Messages
IISD has partnered with the Alternatives to Slash and Burn Partnership for the Tropical Forest Margins at the World Agroforestry Centre (ASB-ICRAF) to deliver a project that builds policy capacity in developing countries engaged in United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) negotiations related to reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries, and the role of conservation, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks in developing countries (REDD+).
The project is funded by NORAD under its Climate and Forest Initiative 2010 civil society support program.
Building on a series of workshops held in Asia and Africa in 2009-10, regional workshops were held in Douala, Cameroon (May 10-12, 2011) and Hanoi, Vietnam (May 18-20, 2011). The workshops, REDD+ after Cancun: Moving from negotiation to implementation, focused on building policy capacity for negotiators and stakeholders (including foresters, land managers and civil society) to develop processes and modalities for REDD+ at the national, regional and international levels that encourage robust REDD+ investments while respecting safeguards and encouraging multiple benefits.
