GFOI partner the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is organizing a webinar to examine the current state and trends of REDD+ reporting (*)  to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Objectives

  • Highlight the important progress on REDD+ reporting to the UNFCCC
  • Reflect on quality of UNFCCC-reported REDD+ results and their ability to underpin results-based payments
  • Jointly think about likely future development of REDD+ reporting
  • Launch the paper “From reference levels to results reporting: REDD+ under the UNFCCC – 2020 update”

Agenda

Why do countries dedicate their efforts to reporting their REDD+ results to the UNFCCC? How can they further improve their data quality and will their efforts be rewarded with results-based payments? These are some of the questions that will be addressed by the speakers during this webinar, which includes representatives of REDD+ countries, GCF, NICFI and other GFOI partners.

  • Margaret Athieno Mwebesa, National REDD+ Focal Point, Uganda
  • Ellen Bruzelius-Backer, Policy Director, Norway’s International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI)
  • Juan Chang, Principal Forest and Land Use Specialist, Green Climate Fund (GCF)
