CD-REDD: Reducing Emissions from Deforestation in Developing Countries

The project aimed at preparing partner countries and building their capacities for participation in an international REDD mechanism. Selected representatives of developing countries (from both the technical/expert and policy sphere) attended workshops to improve their knowledge of specific issues of relevance to REDD: (1) implementation of national IPCC-compatible inventories of forestry and land use, (2) use of remote sensing techniques, (3) development of strategies to reduce deforestation, and (4) readiness activities to empower countries to participate in an international REDD mechanism.
