Alternatives to Slash and Burn Partnership for the Tropical Forest Margins at the World Agroforesty Centre (ASB-ICRAF)

From 2009-2012, the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) partnered with the ASB Partnership for the Tropical Forest Margins at the World Agroforesty Centre (ASBICRAF) to build capacity for REDD+ negotiators and stakeholders in Africa and Asia, with a focus on countries with UN-REDD programs.

The project aimed to increase understanding of the REDD+ negotiations and strengthen capacity, to lay the technical and policy foundations for better REDD+ programs. The project encouraged South-South exchange of information on REDD+, and was undertaken in three stages between 2009 and 2012.

We invite you to explore this web platform, which includes information on REDD+ initiatives and actions throughout Asia and Africa, lessons learned and critical issues moving forward. It also highlights key IISD/ASBICRAF project activities, publications and outcomes.

Generous support for this project, including this web platform, was provided by the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad).
