REDD+ Partnership Launches its Voluntary REDD+ Database

With the aim of delivering reliable information on REDD+ financing and actions, the REDD+ database was launched at the Aichi-Nagoya Ministerial Meeting of the REDD+ Partnership, held in October 2010.


During the Oslo and Climate and Forest Conference held in March 2010, the REDD+ Partnership called for the development of a database of REDD+ financing, actions and results, to improve the effectiveness, efficiency, transparency and coordination of REDD+ initiatives and financial instruments.

Now on-line, this publicly available database for REDD+ financing, actions and results offers a central tool to support analyses and improve transparency. By identifying gaps and overlaps in financing and facilitating the sharing of REDD+ experiences, the database is a key source for information about REDD+ and its development. The database contains information about countries, institutions and their activities within the REDD+ Partnership.
The design and maintenance of the REDD+ database is being carried out by FAO and UNEP on behalf of the UN-REDD Programme Team and the Facility Management Team of the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility.

Visit the database directly at http://reddplusdatabase.org/  or through the REDD+ Partnership website.
