New Phase of UN-REDD launched at COP 21

The United Nations collaborative initiative on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation in Developing Countries (UN-REDD Programme) Fund established in 2008, is entering into a new phase (2016-2020). The new strategic framework, together with a new fund Terms of Reference, was presented during a side event at the COP21 and four new donors-- Norway, the European Union, Spain and Switzerland—have already contributed to this new phase. To date the UN-REDD Programme has offered technical support and specialized expertise on all aspects of REDD+ to over 60 countries, mainly developing technical guidelines, building national capacities and assisting member countries in their efforts to put in place the required capacities and processes required to implement results based actions and become eligible for results-based payments under the expected REDD+ mechanisms. Building on the progress made, the Programme is now expanding its support to more advanced countries in moving towards implementation of REDD+ actions (Policies and Measures).  More information on the UN-REDD Programme can be found on http://www.un-redd.org/
