UN-REDD Launches Lessons Learned Series

30 November 2011: The UN-REDD Programme has launched a new publication series titled "UN-REDD Lessons Learned." The first edition focuses on the Asia-Pacific region.

The booklet identifies challenges and best practices in national strategies 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) that have emerged from UN-REDD's 12 partner countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Examples and case studies on measuring, reporting and verification (MRV), benefit distribution systems and safeguards are included.

In 2012, the Programme will launch publications on lessons learned in Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean. The publication series was launched on the sidelines of the Durban Climate Change Conference. [Publication: UN-REDD Lessons Learned: Asia-Pacific][English | French | Spanish]
