"The FCPF and the UN-REDD Programme continue to gain insights into the depth and breadth of the needs faced by countries as they become ready for REDD+. The assistance countries require from the international community must be well-coordinated to be effective, and FCPF and UN-REDD continue to work together to make important contributions in this context."
Benoit Bosquet, Coordinator, Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF)
"Through the establishment of a cooperation agreement in 2009, the Brazilian Institute for Space Research and the UN-REDD Programme have been working harmoniously to ensure that interested partner countries receive adequate training and have free access to the technology necessary for the development of their own forest monitoring system, which is one pre-requisite to ensure full participation in the REDD+ initiative."
Gilberto Câmara, Director, Brazilian Institute for Space Research (INPE)
"The GEF is seeing its investments with the UN-REDD Programme in forests, sustainable forest management and REDD+ paying dividends by supporting and enhancing the many environmental and economic benefits forests can provide. Sustainable forest management supports our efforts in climate change, biodiversity conservation, and sustainable economic development at local, regional and national levels of people who depend on healthy forests for their livelihoods."
Monique Barbut, CEO and Chairperson of the Global Environment Facility (GEF)
