UN-REDD at COP17 and Forest Day 5

The UN-REDD Programme invites participants at COP17 and FD5 to join in the REDD+ discussions the Programme will host in Durban, where the first publications under the Programme's new Lessons Learned and Policy Brief series will be launched.


Launch of "UN-REDD Lessons Learned: Asia-Pacific"

Drawing from the early experiences of supporting partner countries in their REDD+ readiness and implementation efforts over the past three years, the UN-REDD Programme will launch its first "Lessons Learned" series with a substantive, 12-page publication focusing on lessons learned among UN-REDD Programme partner countries in the Asia-Pacific region. The "UN-REDD Lessons Learned: Asia-Pacific" booklet (in English, French and Spanish) will be available at the REDD+ CEB side event on 30 November 2011 in Durban, as well as at the UN-REDD Programme booth throughout the first week of COP17 and on the UN-REDD Programme website.

In the "UN-REDD Lessons Learned: Asia-Pacific" booklet, the UN-REDD Programme identifies tangible challenges and best practices that have emerged among its 12 partner countries in the region, including examples and case studies related to information, monitoring and MRV, benefit distribution systems, safeguards and the formulation of national REDD+ strategies. In 2012, the Programme will launch two more publications in this series, focusing on lessons learned in Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean.
