Two New Go-REDD+ Issues from UN-REDD in Asia-Pacific

The latest issues from the UN-REDD Programme Asia-Pacific listserv explore how to explain REDD+ at the local level and the potential compatibility of logging and REDD+.


The Go-REDD+ issue entitled, "Conveying REDD+ at the Local Level: Some Steps in the Right Direction" discusses the nine key questions and answers developed by The Center for People and Forests, when communicating REDD+ to Indigenous Peoples and other forest dependent communities. The Go-REDD+ issue also underlines the importance of treading carefully when dealing with questions of monetary benefits, suggesting that one of the biggest challenges related to explaining REDD+ is one of managing expectations.

The Go-REDD+ issue entitled, "Logging and REDD+: Are They Compatible?" summarizes several recent publications looking at synergies between REDD+ and improved forest management to conserve biodiversity, carbon and timber stocks.
