New Resources for REDD+ Negotiators

The Foundation for International Environmental Law and Development (FIELD) will develop and provide resources, including updates on the UN-REDD Programme, to help developing country negotiators working on REDD+ in the lead-up to COP-16 in December.


REDD+ negotiations have progressed rapidly over the last few years, making it difficult for negotiators and others to keep up. To help inform REDD+ negotiations, FIELD will be providing briefing papers and other support to developing country negotiators working on REDD+ in the lead-up to the UNFCCC Conference of the Parties in December this year in Cancun.

FIELD will also follow REDD+ developments outside the official climate change negotiations, for example, reporting on outcomes from the Interim REDD+ Partnership and UN-REDD Programme events, and will provide updates to interested representatives of governments, civil society, indigenous peoples and others.

FIELD is a group of international environmental lawyers based in London and its work includes advocacy, advice, capacity-building and research.  FIELD works with a wide range of governments and stakeholders, focusing on developing countries, civil society and indigenous peoples.

FIELD will provide information under this project on a neutral, non partisan basis. When feasible, FIELD will provide the information in English, French and Spanish.
For further information on this initiative, you can consult their website.  If you would like to join FIELD’s REDD+ distribution lists, email field@field.org.uk.

This project is funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.
