National REDD+ Strategy

Tackling climate change

This is to help the nation secure increased international funding and support to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation.

Supported by the Government of PNG’s Climate Change Development Authority and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the retreats will flesh out Finance and Investment Plans to put into operation PNG’s National REDD+ Strategy (NRS) 2017-2027, which was endorsed by the PNG Government in May 2017.

REDD+ Strategy validation workshop on this week

REDD+ stands for countries' efforts to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, and foster conservation, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks.

The workshop, scheduled on Wednesday, March 29, will highlight the National Forest Monitoring System Action Plan, Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory and Forest Reference Level for REDD+ in PNG.

The Government of Papua New Guinea (GoPNG), under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and Paris Climate Change Agreement, has been developing the strategy.
