REDD+ Partnership

Countries have recognized the critical role of forests in mitigating climate change. To advance this issue, a group of developed and developing countries with a commitment for international cooperation are taking efforts  to enable effective, transparent and coordinated fast action on reducing greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) in developing countries. This new collaboration is called the REDD+ Partnership.

The REDD+ Partnership has recently launched its website as an entry point for essential information on initiatives to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries.

Through this platform REDD+ Partners share documents, including the outcomes of the Oslo Climate and Forest Conference, and the International Conference on the Major Forest Basins (Paris) – both held in 2010, and exchange information and views related to REDD+ activities seeking “to scale up REDD+ actions and finance, and to that end to take immediate action, including improving the effectiveness, efficiency, transparency and coordination of REDD+ initiatives and financial instruments, to facilitate among other things knowledge transfer, capacity enhancement, mitigation actions and technology development and transfer”.
