The UN-REDD Programme 2009 Year in Review Report

In March, the UN-REDD Programme released its inaugural “Year in Review” report for 2009.

Read the report: English French Spanish

The review reflects on the Programme’s first full year in operation, highlighting the significant progress of its pilot countries, the partnerships it cultivated with international partners throughout the year, and the impact the Programme was able to make in building international consensus for REDD+. The report also highlights the important national and international work the Programme supported in key work areas, including measuring, reporting and verification (MRV), engagement of Indigenous Peoples and Civil  Society and in the promotion of the multiple benefits of forests.

The report features testimonials of the UN-REDD Programme from various leaders in the REDD+ milieu, including heads of the UN-REDD Programme’s three convening agencies, Helen Clark (UNDP), Jacques Diouf (FAO) and Achim Steiner (UNEP), Norway’s Environment and International Cooperation Minister, Erik Solheim, as well as national REDD+ focal points and representatives from forestry organizations and NGOs.
