Call for Nominations: Civil Society Representatives to the UN-REDD Policy Board

The UN‐REDD Programme is seeking to identify four Civil Society Organization (CSO) representatives to its Policy Board: one CSO from each of the Programme’s three regions (Africa, Asia‐Pacific, and Latin America and the Caribbean) and one CSO from a developed country. The Bank Information Center is conducting the self‐selection process at the invitation of the UN‐REDD Programme, following consultations with the Independent Advisory Group on Forests, Rights, and Climate Change.

July 13, 2012 marks the start of a three‐week nomination period for the self‐selection process, which will end on 3 August, 2012, to be followed by a three‐week voting period from 10-31 August 2012. The election will conclude in time for the new CSO representatives to travel to Brazzaville, Republic of Congo for the ninth meeting of the UN‐REDD Programme Policy Board on 26-27 October 2012.
