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 Policy Brief: "REDD+ and a Green Economy"

The UN-REDD Programme's inaugural policy brief entitled, "REDD+ and a Green Economy: Opportunities for a mutually supportive relationship", will also be launched at the REDD+ CEB side event on 30 November 2011 in Durban, and will be available at the UN-REDD Programme booth throughout the first week of COP17 and on the UN-REDD Programme website.

In the "REDD+ and a Green Economy" policy brief, the UN-REDD Programme explores the concepts of REDD+ as a source of investment for green development; as a natural capital-led investment strategy; and as an opportunity for change to green development. The policy brief also offers recommendations for creating a roadmap for REDD+ in the context of green development.
