Defining REDD+ Success: Expert workshop on safeguard information systems and private sector engagement

By on May 10, 2012

Two critical determinants of REDD+ success moving forward are: (1) developing and implementing REDD+ safeguard information systems (SIS) and (2) fostering effective private sector engagement in the REDD+ value chain.

To explore these issues, an expert meeting was held in Nairobi, Kenya, on April 2-3, 2012, under the Building REDD+ Policy Capacity for Developing Country Negotiators and Land Managers project. The workshop was delivered by IISD and the ASB Partnership for the Tropical Forest Margins at the World Agroforestry Centre (ASB-ICRAF), with the generous support of the Government of Norway. Experts from government, the private sector and civil society from 18 countries shared information and lessons learned in order to build capacity on REDD+.
