REDD+ Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation

Country support

More than eighty countries across Africa, Asia Pacific and Latin America and the Caribbean have received support from FAO in their REDD+ readiness and implementation phases.

Needs assessments help identify capacity gaps so that technical support, policy advice, trainings and other capacity development efforts are tailored to each country’s specific needs and context. South-South cooperation, learning exchanges, and dissemination of knowledge and best practices on REDD+ across countries are also critical components of FAO’s support to countries.

To deliver this support, FAO works together with countries, through bilateral initiatives and as part of the collective efforts of the UN-REDD Programme (FAO, UNDP and UN Environment). FAO works as well through collaboration with a range of partners such as the Central African Forest Initiative (CAFI), the World Bank, the Global Environment Facility and the Green Climate Fund.
