This booklet reflects on the outcomes of the 17th Conference of the Parties (COP) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). In particular, it includes 13 questions and answers on forestry, climate change and reduced emissions from deforestation and forest degradation plus sustainable management of forests, conservation, and enhancement of forest carbon stocks (REDD+). The responses have been elaborated by thirteen climate change and forestry experts gathered in Quezon City, Philippines, to discuss the implications on the forestry sector in the Asia-Pacific region of decisions taken at COP 17, held in Durban, South Africa, in November and December 2011.
