Two New Go-REDD+ Issues from UN-REDD in Asia-Pacific
The latest issues from the UN-REDD Programme Asia-Pacific listserv take a closer look at the cost-effective approaches to reverse forest degradation or restore forest, and the importance of national capacity development in forest monitoring for REDD+.
The Go-REDD+ issue entitled, Reversing forest degradation – beyond enrichment planting, discusses the cost-effective approaches in reversing forest degradation or restoring forests for four different degrees of degraded lands, ranging from slightly to critically degraded forests.
The Go-REDD+ issue entitled, Data in doubt: Why remote sensing needs ground truthing, explores why only remote sensing is not enough and necessity in developing national capacity when it comes to forest monitoring. It recommends what countries hoping to be benefited from REDD+ should do to develop robust national monitoring system.
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.
