The Conference of the Parties (COP), at its seventeenth session, requested the secretariat to organize a workshop on financing options for the full implementation of results based actions relating to REDD-plus, including modalities and procedures for financing such actions, before the session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action under the Convention to be held in conjunction with COP 18. The workshop was held during the informal additional session of the ad hoc working groups, in Bangkok, Thailand, on 30 August 2012.
