24 February 2011:  The International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) has released a call for proposals for its Thematic Programme on Reducing Deforestation and Forest Degradation and Enhancing Environmental Services (REDDES).

The call for proposals from member countries notes that priority will be given to projects that address the fundamental drivers of deforestation, forest degradation and enhancing environmental services and provide sustainable solutions through: monitoring, assessment, reporting and evaluation of carbon and other environmental services; policy, legal and institutional frameworks and capacity building; studies on market potential of carbon and other environmental services; and demonstration activities on enhancing environmental services and local livelihoods. ITTO invites proposals for  projects, small projects and pre-projects, which need to conform with the REDDES deliverables. The deadline for proposal submission is 22 April 2011.
