REDD+ Partnership Meeting in Brazil

The Interim REDD+ Partnership, established at the Oslo Climate and Forest Conference in May, held its first expert meeting in Brasilia 14-15 July, and the UN-REDD Programme was there to lend support and present initial concepts for a global REDD+ voluntary database.


Over 130 participants, from 32 countries and several international organizations attended the meeting which was co-chaired by representatives from Japan and Papua New Guinea. The agenda began with a discussion among partner countries on what concrete actions the REDD+ Partnership should take to fulfill its objectives. Key milestones were also identified and discussed, including scheduling meetings at upcoming events in Nagoya and COP-16 in Cancun.

There was wide consensus about the development of a voluntary REDD+ database. The UN-REDD Programme presented its preliminary work on some initial ideas and concepts for how this database could be set-up, with the goal of tracking global REDD+ activities on financing, actions, results and preliminary gap analyses. Several partners suggested that a detailed concept note on the database would be a core deliverable to be presented at the next partnership meeting in Nagoya this October.

The UN-REDD Programme, in collaboration with the FCPF also provided logistical assistance to meeting, and presented to the Partnership a range of Secretariat services the Programme and FCPF could offer moving forward.

The discussions on the Partnership workplan and working modalities are expect to continue alongside the Bonn Climate Changes Talks at the beginning of August.
