Indonesia and UN-REDD to host Global Symposium on REDD+ in a Green Economy

The Symposium aims to highlight how REDD+ can help countries to further develop their green growth agenda.

The UN-REDD Programme, in collaboration with the Government of Indonesia and international partners, will convene a Global Symposium on REDD+ in a Green Economy, in Jakarta on 19 and 20 June 2013. The Global Symposium aims to take stock of the lessons learned across the UN-REDD Programme, with a view to support the political momentum for REDD+ by showcasing how it can catalyze green economy/green growth efforts. Symposium participants will be invited to share knowledge and experience on linking REDD+ with green economy/green growth efforts in UN-REDD Programme partner countries.

Over the past three years, the UN-REDD Programme has developed a body of work on linking REDD+ with broader sustainable development goals and a green economy transition, and carried out pilot activities in a number of partner countries.

A presentation of the main outcomes of the Symposium will be provided to participants of the 10th UN-REDD Policy Board meeting in June 2013 in Indonesia. Please contact John.Prydz@unep.org for more information.
