UN-REDD Report Round-Up

The UN-REDD Programme has produced several new reports over the past month, including the Programme's 2010 Year in Review, a MRV for REDD+ in Tanzania report and a full report from the Programme's FPIC workshop in Africa.


The UN-REDD Programme "2010 Year in Review" Report
The UN-REDD Programme launched its “2010 Year in Review” report at the Programme's recent Policy Board meeting in Da Lat, Viet Nam in March. This year's report highlights the significant progress and achievements made by the Programme's National and Global Programmes throughout 2010. The report also highlights the Programme's key partnerships with international partners throughout the year and the impact the Programme was able to make in building international consensus for REDD+.

MRV for REDD+ in Tanzania
One of the most important challenges in the establishment of a REDD+ mechanism is being able to account for the amount of carbon in order to provide a value. Establishing transparent and reliable forest monitoring systems will be a key factor in guaranteeing the success of payments for REDD+. To better understand the main concepts related to measuring, reporting and verification (MRV) of carbon stocks, the UN-REDD Programme in Tanzania has recently published two brochures highlighting the main concepts of MRV, its tools and methodologies as well as the current MRV activities under way in the country and the main institutions involved. 

Final Reports from UN-REDD FPIC Regional Workshops

All final reports from the Asia-Pacific (English), Latin American and Caribbean (English/Spanish), and African (English/French) regional consultations on Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) and Recourse are now available. Inputs from these consultations with indigenous peoples in these three regions is currently being synthesized into global FPIC and Recourse guidelines for the UN-REDD Programme.
