UN-REDD Programme events in Copenhagen

Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation and associated efforts to conserve, sustainably manage, and enhance forest carbon stocks (REDD+) was much discussed during COP15, in Copenhagen.

The UN-REDD Programme hosted and participated in a number of events during the Conference. Activities kicked off with a presentation on board the REDD Carriage of the Climate Express Train running from Brussels to Copenhagen on 5 December.

At Forest Day 3, on 13 December, the UN-REDD Programme contributed to no less than five events. It co-hosted, together with the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF), a learning event titled: “Scope of the Global Climate Agreement: Emerging Lessons from Current REDD Activities” and highlighted the results achieved in the nine pilot UN-REDD countries.

The Programme also contributed to the Rural Livelihoods event organized by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), co-hosted the “Measuring and Monitoring, Baselines and Leakages” and ”Forests Biodiversity and Climate Change” events, and participated in the discussion on “Financing REDD+”.

Later that week on 16 December, the Programme provided support to and participated in the Avoided Deforestation Partners event: “Reducing Emissions from Deforestation: Opportunities for U.S. Initiatives in Support of a Global Framework”, co-hosted by Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Wangari Maathai with the participation of UNDP Administrator Helen Clark, as well as the “Support REDD+ Gala”, hosted by the Coalition for Rainforest Nations.
