REDD+ workshop underway in Port Moresby

A workshop on Forest Reference Level (FRL) for reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) in Papua New Guinea is underway in Port Moresby.

The workshop is facilitated by the Climate Change Development Authority in partnership with United Nations-REDD Programme, PNG Forest Authority (PNGFA) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

This is the final validated workshop which aims to present the results on PNG's FRL assessment and documentation of its overall submission content, to be validated by all relevant stakeholders.

Participants include non-government organisations, universities and research institutions, community leaders, private sectors and development partners.

The expected outcome of the workshop is to have the FRL submission have consensus of all relevant stakeholders and validated before it is submitted for NEC's endorsement.

It is reviewed and finalised for submission in January 2017.
