From 2018 – 2020, UNDP, with funding from the Government of Norway, supported 35 states and provinces in the Governors’ Climate & Forests Task Force to develop and/or revise jurisdictional strategies and investment plans to reduce emissions from deforestation and degradation.
This report compiles the key issues for tropical forest countries to consider in their engagement as suppliers of high integrity forest carbon credits to the VCMs.
Consideration for Integrating Nature-Based Solutions in Nationally Determined Contributions Illustrating the Potential Through REDD+
Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) is a key nature-based solution (NBS) for the forest sector. Drawing on lessons from UNDP’s support to REDD+ countries over the past decade, this paper describes crucial areas for policy makers to consider when seeking to enhance their NDCs and support NDC implementation through NBS.
Environmental Integrity in Voluntary Carbon Markets – Forest Countries’ Perspectives
A report outlining emerging issues in voluntary carbon markets across 82 tropical forest countries.
This paper provides recommendations for how government decision-makers can incorporate the full potential of forests for climate change mitigation and adaptation in NDCs under the Paris Agreement. It seeks to inform policymakers in developing measurable policies and actions for NDCs and other national climate strategies and policy documents.
In this issue you will find a special feature on UNDP’s decade-long experience in using innovative bottom-up approaches that has generated a wealth of country-level knowledge on how to design and implement on-the-ground solutions to strengthen women’s involvement and integrate a gender equality approach in REDD+ action
In 2013, the UN-REDD Programme established the Community-based REDD+ initiative (CBR+), as a pioneering scheme for community action in the REDD+ domain.
