Lessons Learned and Recommendations from Early UNFCCC REDD+ Reference Levels Submissions
Posted on 03 November 2016
This paper presents lessons learned and best practice recommendations from an unprecedented convening of two groups of experts.
Produced in partnership with Environmental Defense Fund, International Union for the Conservation of Nature, The Nature Conservancy, and Union of Concerned Scientists, this paper presents lessons learned and best practice recommendations from an unprecedented workshop convening of two groups of experts:
those from REDD+ countries who were involved in creating FRLs/FRELs, and
those who had served as members of the Technical Team of Experts performing technical analysis of REDD+ results.
Forest Reference Levels/Forest Reference Emissions Levels (FRLs/FRELs) are critical to the policy framework for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD+), and provide the benchmark against which countries measure their results from REDD+ implementation. FRLs/FRELs are still incipient, and REDD+ countries and technical assessors are still in a learning-by-doing process, generating valuable lessons that are worth sharing.
