New REDD Facility website launched
EFI’s EU REDD Facility has launched a new website: www.euredd.efi.int The new portal provides information on the REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) initiative, including interactions between REDD+ and other forest governance initiatives.
The Facility was established in December 2010 to provide support to the design and implementation of REDD+ policies in developing countries. It aims to help developing countries build their capacity and improve forest governance for REDD+ through analysis, advice, outreach and training, as well as by facilitating access to and benefit from ongoing initiatives.
The Facility is currently engaged in five countries: Democratic Republic of Congo, Guyana, Indonesia, Republic of Congo and Vietnam.
