The UN-REDD Programme is pleased to announce the launch of the first online version of its successful REDD+ Academy courses and accompanying Learning Journals, making this valuable knowledge resource available to REDD+ policymakers, practitioners and communities worldwide.
The REDD+ Academy was designed to support developing countries to gain the knowledge and capacities needed to deliver REDD+ at the scale required to match the global climate change mitigation challenge. A year ago, the UN-REDD Programme launched the first REDD+ Academy -- organized as a live, regional learning forum in Asia-Pacific. Since then, the REDD+ Academy has expanded to Africa and the Latin America/Caribbean regions, and has included the participation of nearly 500 representatives of 49 UN-REDD Programme partner countries. On 25 November, the REDD+ Academy was launched as an online e-course, supported by accompanying Learning Journals -- developed with the support of UNITAR's UN CC:Learn Secretariat.
