Two New Go-REDD+ Issues from UN-REDD in Asia-Pacific
The latest issues from the UN-REDD Programme Asia-Pacific listserv take a closer look at UNFCCC decisions on forest monitoring for REDD+ and participatory approaches to designing REDD+ benefits.
The Go-REDD+ issue entitled, Deciphering UNFCCC Decisions on National Forest Monitoring Systems for REDD+, translates the complex meaning of UNFCCC decisions on national forest monitoring systems for REDD+ and why comprehending the complex UNFCCC decision texts should be first and foremost important to developing countries, which aim to develop their national forest monitoring systems for REDD+.
The Go-REDD+ issue entitled, A Participatory Approach to Design REDD+ Benefits, uses the example of Viet Nam's continuing work on designing a REDD+ compliant benefit distribution system to illustrate some of the unexpected dynamics and challenges associated with stakeholder engagement on REDD+.
Go-REDD+ is a bi-monthly newsletter distributed by email and managed by the UN-REDD Programme team in Asia-Pacific. The main objective is to distribute information, synopses of research results and activities related to REDD+ in Asia-Pacific, to assist countries in their REDD+ readiness efforts.
