National UN-REDD Programme Updates

Ecuador signs its National Programme and enters into implementation; REDD+ Readiness consultations begin in Bangladesh; the Philippines officially kicks off REDD+ implementation with its Inception workshop; and Viet Nam finalizes its study on ecological stratification linked to REDD+.

Philippines' Inception Workshop kicks of their National Programme implementation

The Philippines inception workshop, held last October 15, 2011, brought together close to 60 participants from over 20 organizations and different divisions of national and international agencies. Views and comments expressed by participants were considered and shall be included in the final workshop report that will be coming soon. The participatory process of enriching the documents of the UN-REDD National Programme in the Philippines allowed the establishment of a programme crafted together by the national agencies and civil society organizations in the country.

At the Inception Workshop, the UN-REDD Programme recognized the particularly strong inputs of the group CodeREDD who worked on the development of the national REDD+ strategy, which has been a great asset to the UN-REDD Programme in the Philippines. The country's national strategy will benefit from the inputs of the UN-REDD Programme to strengthen the implementation of its actions. This concerns in particular the MRV activities. The implementation of a monitoring and MRV action plan which can be integrated into the national strategy and support for the development of a national forest monitoring system shall be the main contributions of the UN-REDD+ Programme.
