The speak entitled “What have we learned from the REDD+ process? A discussion on the critical issues to address climate change post-Paris” is hosted by the Forests and Landscapes Climate Finance Team (2016-02-16).

Recent efforts in developing countries to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation and to enhance forest carbon stocks (REDD+) have highlighted the importance of land use in achieving national climate change targets through integrated approaches that promote sustainable land management. Going forward, important questions remain: how can REDD+ actions can be scaled-up and sustained; and how can different climate financing mechanisms be effectively harnessed and leveraged to support countries in achieving credible and verifiable results, including those outlined in their nationally determined contributions (NDC) under the UN Climate Change Convention. The presenter will reflect on these questions in light of the outcome of the recent Paris Agreement and the insights that have been gained through a variety of international initiatives over the last couple of years.
