New "GO-REDD+" Listserv launched in Asia-Pacific

Through GO-REDD+, the UN-REDD Programme team in Asia-Pacific will disseminate a wide range of regionally-focused information on REDD+ to assist countries in their REDD+ readiness efforts.

To kick start 2012, the UN-REDD Programme team in Asia-Pacific has launched an invitation for the new knowledge-sharing gateway “Go-REDD+”. As part of the UN-REDD Programme’s regional support to countries in the Asia-Pacific, Go-REDD+ is an electronic listserve that will distribute information, hot topic, synopses of research results and activities related to REDD+ in Asia-Pacific.

Messages will be disseminated twice a month and all messages will be archived on the Regional Activities page of the UN-REDD Programme's web-site. The first issue of GO-REDD+ was launched on 9 January 2012, exploring the topic of seeking Free, Prior and Informed Consent in REDD+ readiness and implementation efforts. For those who are interested in keeping updated on REDD+ issues, or have some interesting stories to share about REDD+ in Asia-Pacific, contact the Go-REDD+ Team at Goredd.th@undp.org.
