Global Symposium on REDD+ in a Green Economy

19 Jun 2013 - 21 Jun 2013
Jakarta, Indonesia

This symposium aims to take stock of the lessons learned from pilot activities linking reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation plus conservation and sustainable management of forests and the enhancement of forest carbon stocks (REDD+) to sustainable development and the green economy, with a view to provide key decision makers with a stronger rationale for linking REDD+ planning and REDD+ investments with green economy efforts. It is also intended to build capacity for achieving synergies in this area. The event focuses on the role of comprehensive land-use planning for capturing environmental, economic and social benefits from REDD+ investments.
