The central goal of the UN-REDD Programme's National and Global Programmes is to support the efforts of partner countries to develop and implement REDD+ strategies. It is at this country level that the REDD+ concept is taking shape and making the most tangible inroads.

The UN-REDD Global Programme seeks to benefit all UN-REDD Programme partner countries simultaneously by developing and delivering knowledge-based services, products and expertise that support countries as they progress through the phases of REDD+, from initial readiness to full implementation and results-based actions. The expected impact of the Global Programme is to help partner countries establish sufficient capacity at all levels to design and implement results-based REDD+ actions and use their own natural resources in ways that maximize poverty reduction.

At its fifth meeting in November 2010, the UN-REDD Programme Policy Board welcomed the plan to move to a five-year (2011-2015) funding Framework for the new Global Programme. This new Framework builds on the Programme's support to partner countries through international functions over the past two years. The Global Programme Framework reflects the outcomes and opportunities of the Cancun Agreements on REDD+ as well as the need to scale up REDD+ actions and finance.

The Framework seeks to operationalize the UN-REDD Programme Strategy 2011-2015, through technical support to countries in six interlinked work areas:

1. Measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) and monitoring
2. National REDD+ governance
3. Transparent, equitable and accountable management of REDD+ funds
4. Engagement of Indigenous Peoples (IP), civil society and other stakeholders
5. Ensuring multiple benefits of forests and REDD+
6. REDD+ as a catalyst for transformations to a green economy

These work areas combine support to country-led efforts toward transparent governance systems, clearer tenure rights, poverty alleviation and improved food security, sustainable land use policies and management of forests, reduced loss of natural forests and biodiversity, the empowerment of women, robust monitoring of REDD+ activities, and positive sectoral change overall.To achieve these goals, the UN-REDD Global Programme Framework defines a range of tangible outputs under six key outcomes (in Part A of the document), as well as outputs for two support function outcomes related to the Programme's knowledge management and Secretariat services (in Part B of the document). This Framework also proposes a consolidated work plan and budget for a two-year period, an indicative budget for year three and anticipates a similar trend until the end of 2015. The Framework is a living document and will be reviewed annually. The Global Programme will also be evaluated periodically as set out in the UN-REDD Programme Strategy.
