En français:  Cours d'introduction sur le dispositif de Réduction des émissions liées à la déforestation et à la dégradation des forêts (REDD):  pdf-icon Manuel de référence des participants (5622 kB)

This manual was created through a collaborative effort of the Climate, Community, and Biodiversity Alliance (CCBA); Conservation International (CI); GTZ; The Nature Conservancy (TNC); Rainforest Alliance (RA); and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). The manual contains basic information on various aspects of REDD, including: forests' role in climate change, drivers of deforestation, strategies to reduce deforestation, REDD technical elements, international policy context, social considerations, biodiversity and ecosystem considerations, national-level activities, project standards, and project development. It was created to support training workshops that our organizations are implementing in various countries, but can also serve as a source of background information for those new to REDD.

pdf-icon Implications of REDD baseline methods for different country circumstances during an initial performance period (1657 kB)  

A paper submitted by Rane Cortez, on behalf of The Nature Conservancy. This paper compares the outcomes of seven proposed approaches to determine national baselines for measuring REDD (Compensated Reductions, Joint Research Center, Corridor Approach (V1 and V2), Combined Incentives, Stock-Flow, Terrestrial Carbon Group) as a function of country circumstances, using a retrospective analysis of FAO National Forest Resource Assessment (FRA) forest carbon emissions data.
