International Workshop on Nested Approaches to REDD+

Event Overview

International Workshop on Nested Approaches to REDD+

March 16, 2011 - March 17, 2011

Miami, USA

There is growing support for the idea of 'nested' approaches to REDD+ that integrate project-level or state-level actions with broader national strategies and accounting frameworks. However, for developing country policymakers, putting nesting into practice represents a series of complex decisions at a time when policy and market conditions are still very much in flux. This small, high-level workshop brought together key policy makers from developing countries with leading international experts to focus on practical, near-term actions that countries (or states) may adopt to encourage projects and private investment in a way that is consistent with broader REDD+ readiness and strategies.

This workshop was made possible by the generous support of its sponsors: USAID Translinks*, the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation, and the Forum on Readiness for REDD.
