Description The UN-REDD Programme is the United Nations' flagship partnership on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD) in developing countries. It was the UN's first interagency climate change initiative combing the technical expertise and convening power of FAO, UNDP and UNEP.
Objectives With the goal to reduce forest emissions and enhance carbon stocks in forests while contributing to national sustainable development the UN-REDD Programme supports nationally-led REDD+ processes and promotes the informed and meaningful involvement of all stakeholders, including Indigenous Peoples and other forest-dependent communities, in national and international REDD+ implementation.
Activities UN-REDD supports partner countries through:

- Direct support to the design and implementation of National REDD+ Programmes; - Complementary tailored support to national REDD+ actions; - Technical capacity building support through sharing of expertise, common approaches, analyses, methodologies, tools, data, best practices and facilitated South-South knowledge sharing - Facilitation of a REDD+ dialogue between governments, civil society, private sector and technical experts. Areas: - Forest governance - Stakeholder engagement / FPIC - Tenure security - Gender equality - National forest monitoring systems - Safeguards - Multiple benefits - Green economy
