AGENDA: International seminar on reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation: “REDD+ expectations and experiences”

Source : Forest and Landscape

To mark the International Year of the Forest a one day seminar “REDD+ expectations and experiences” will be held. The aim of the seminar is to examine critical issues that have arisen in the international effort to design and implement mechanisms for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation and forest degradation. Initially put forward as a relatively simple means of mitigating climate change by avoiding deforestation, the expectations associated with REDD+ have steadily increased. At the same time, it has become increasingly apparent that building a national and international REDD+ mechanism is a lengthy and complex process. The seminar will bring together researchers and practitioners to compare expectations associated with REDD+ with experiences gained from pilot forest carbon initiatives.

Target groups

Researchers, practitioners, and students with an interest in REDD+.

Organisers

The Technical Advisory Service (TAS) of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark together with the International Union of Forest Research Organisations (IUFRO), and Forest & Landscape Denmark (FLD) of University of Copenhagen.
