Project Description

Building on previous work and successes the UN-REDD Programme will continue serving partner countries and practitioners worldwide as a global REDD+ knowledge hub. Entering the implementation phase will see a further increase in requests coming from partner countries to strengthen capacity and share knowledge and experience with relevant decision-makers, in order to find the most cost-effective and impactful ways to reduce and reverse deforestation and forest degradation. Knowledge Management is a key process for the delivery of the Programme’s 2016-2020 strategic framework, designed to strengthen support to countries in accessing and sharing well-documented, evidence-based REDD+ readiness and implementation knowledge aligned with UNFCCC REDD+ requirements. 

The UN-REDD Programme knowledge hub consists of two distinct areas, designed to capture, adapt and share knowledge and experiences from the field and science: (i) knowledge management via the collaborative workspace and South-South exchanges, and (ii) capacity building via the REDD+ Academy. There will be elements of common tools, systems and knowledge exchange opportunities for all partner 22 countries, while other aspects of knowledge management and capacity building will be tailored to the context and needs of a particular country or region. The workspace is the primary online platform to collect and share information and experience of the activities of partner countries. Knowledge is also a key building block of capacity development, which countries have identified as critical to delivering REDD+. Capacity to implement REDD+ is enhanced through the REDD+ Academy, which currently entails regional and in-country training session as well as an online course. The REDD+ Academy learning journals, covering 12 modules from safeguards to REDD+ finance, is currently the most comprehensive free online course on REDD+.
