New Go-REDD+ Issue Explores How to Become a "Forest Adding" Country

The latest issue from the UN-REDD Asia-Pacific listserv looks at how lessons from REDD+ can help countries become "forest-adding" states.


The Go-REDD+ issue entitled, "Lessons from REDD+ on how to become a forest-adding country", highlights the results of a recent study ("The Greener Side of REDD+: Lessons for REDD+ from Countries where Forest Area is Increasing" by Hans Gregersen et al.) that looks at how five countries (Chile,  China,  India,  the  Republic  of Korea and Viet Nam) have  managed to add millions of hectares to their forest  estates in recent decades, to  learn what and what not to do under a REDD+ mechanism.
