ASB and IISD Develop Platform for South-South Exchange on REDD+

April 2011: The Alternatives to Slash and Burn Partnership for the Tropical Forest Margins at the World Agroforestry Centre (ASB-ICRAF) and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) have developed a platform for building capacity for REDD+(reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation  in developing countries, as well as conservation, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of carbon stocks) negotiators and stakeholders in Africa and Asia.

The project is focusing on countries with UN-REDD programmes. The project provides information on technical and policy experiences in the forestry sector that will contribute to more effective REDD+ implementation. The site includes information on REDD+ activities in Africa and Asia, providing context through lessons learned.

ASB-ICRAF is a member of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR). [ASB-ICRAF and IISD REDD+ Platform]
