REDD+ Partnership Launches New Website

The Interim REDD+ Partnership launched its new website, reddpluspartnership.org, during its recent workshop at the UNFCCC Climate Change Talks in Tianjin.


The new site is an entry point to essential information on initiatives to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) in developing countries. Through this website, the 69 countries that have joined the REDD+ Partnership share documents, including the outcomes of the Oslo Climate and Forest Conference, and the International Conference on the Major Forest Basins (Paris) – both held in 2010– and exchange information and views related to REDD+ activities seeking to scale up REDD+ actions and finance.

Immediate action is expected to improve the effectiveness, efficiency, transparency and coordination of REDD+ initiatives and financial instruments, to facilitate among other things knowledge transfer, capacity enhancement, mitigation actions and technology development and transfer. The website is also used as a tool for communication among partners and between partners and stakeholders, and for sharing information with a wide audience.

In its recent workshop on 2 October 2010 in Tianjin, China, the REDD+ Partnership reviewed and welcomed the progress made with the voluntary REDD+ database and the analysis of gaps and overlaps in REDD+ financing, both developed by the UN-REDD Programme Team and the World Bank hosted Facility Management Team of the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility, in collaboration with the Forest Investment Program.

Visit the REDD+ Partnership website at www.reddpluspartnership.org. It can also be accessed through the UNFCCC REDD Platform.
