The Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) Community Carbon Pools Program has just published its first e-newsletter, which features updates from the pilot sites as well as links to online resources. The program has been up and runnning since July last year and a multitude of activities on the ground as well as in the region have already been started. Here are some highlights from January to April of 2012.
The REDD+ Community Carbon Pools Program is a regional initiative in Southeast Asia to improve and strengthen REDD+ related forest governance, by ensuring that the tenurial rights of indigenous and forest-dependent communities are incorporated into the decision-making process and creating Community Carbon Pools.
The program is managed by Fauna & Flora International (FFI) working in close partnership with the NTFP-Exchange Program and PanNature. The program seeks to create synergies and share knowledge between the program countries: Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam.
