Two New Go-REDD+ Issues from UN-REDD in Asia-Pacific
The latest issues from the UN-REDD Programme Asia-Pacific listserv explore how to explain REDD+ at the local level and the potential compatibility of logging and REDD+.
The Go-REDD+ issue entitled, "Conveying REDD+ at the Local Level: Some Steps in the Right Direction" discusses the nine key questions and answers developed by The Center for People and Forests, when communicating REDD+ to Indigenous Peoples and other forest dependent communities. The Go-REDD+ issue also underlines the importance of treading carefully when dealing with questions of monetary benefits, suggesting that one of the biggest challenges related to explaining REDD+ is one of managing expectations.
The Go-REDD+ issue entitled, "Logging and REDD+: Are They Compatible?" summarizes several recent publications looking at synergies between REDD+ and improved forest management to conserve biodiversity, carbon and timber stocks.
Go-REDD+ is a bi-monthly newsletter distributed by email and managed by the UN-REDD Programme team in Asia-Pacific. The main objective is to distribute information, synopses of research results and activities related to REDD+ in Asia-Pacific, to assist countries in their REDD+ readiness efforts.
