and Forest Degradation in Developing Countries
 
 
 
 
First Policy Board Meeting

The UN-REDD Programme held its first Policy Board meeting from 9th to 10th March 2009 in Panama.

During the high level Policy Board meeting, senior government representatives of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Tanzania, and Viet Nam, presented their plans for preparing national strategies for a future REDD regime. The presentation of the national programmes served as valuable learning and sharing experiences among participants on the way forward.

The $18 million worth of funding, roughly a third of the sums currently available, has been approved in support of action plans to assist the countries concerned prepare for the inclusion of REDD in a new climate deal. An additional $6.9 million was approved for global activities that support country efforts.
