Interim framework on deforestation agreed

A voluntary partnership of 58 nations has been set up to coordinate action on reducing emissions from deforestation. The project is an interim solution while global climate negotiations continue

Efforts to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD) will be coordinated through a new partnership agreed at a conference held in Oslo, Norway at the end of May.1

The interim, voluntary and non-legally binding REDD+ Partnership has 58 participants including the UK, US, China, Brazil and most major rainforest nations.

As part of the package of fast-start climate finance under the Copenhagen Accord (ENDS Report 420, p 34), developed nations have so far pledged $4bn to combat deforestation. This includes capacity building and so-called REDD-readiness activities such as establishing national forest monitoring systems.
