Capacity Development for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (CD REDD)

The Coalition for Rainforest Nations together with Thünen Institute are carrying out the “CD-REDD II” capacity development initiative for REDD with the support of the GIZ (German International Cooperation Agency) as part of the International Climate Initiative. The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety supports this initiative on the basis of a decision adopted by the German Bundestag.


The CD-REDD II program has two complementary technical aims:

  • Build capacity in developing countries on National GHG Inventory for the AFOLU sector with focus on forest related GHG fluxes (countries should have the capacity to develop and report a National GHG Inventory for the forest sector by the end of 2013),
  • Training on the IPCC methods as well as how-to establishing sustainable workflows and incorporating components recommended for such a National Inventory System, plus support the UNFCCC review process by providing trained staff from developing countries to the Roster of Experts.
    The technical aims contribute to two of the functions of the National MRV System: The reporting by means of the National GHG Inventory and the verification by means of training of experts for the UNFCCC review process. To realize this scope there are some minimum requirements:
  • A country plan for the National GHG Inventory, including an improvement plan,
  • At least 2 resource persons per participating country trained on IPCC Guidelines,
  • Collection of all available national data required for conducting a complete and consistent national GHG inventory, and documentation of these,
  • Preparation of a draft GHG Inventory report with the consequent key category analysis.

Participating Countries to this Project are: Argentina, Botswana, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Ghana, Guyana, Liberia, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Suriname, Tanzania, and Zambia.

For more information on CD-REDD II, their time frame, and work see their website (http://www.cdredd.org). Recently published has been a pdf-icon lessons learned document on the work with the project countries.
