United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)

Effective reporting on climate actions

Climate reporting is an important tool for promoting transparency, accountability and for informed climate actions.

Led by Climate Change and Development Authority (CCDA) with technical support of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the workshop was a key step under phase two of PNG’s Capacity Building Initiative for Transparency (CBIT) project.

PNG’s REDD+ Guidelines Validated

During a workshop hosted by Climate Change and Development Authority (CCDA) in Port Moresby recently, four guidelines referred to as the REDD+ Safeguards Guidelines were validated by CCDA, its partners and key stakeholders.

CCDA’s REDD+ and Mitigation Division General Manager, Gwen Sissiou, highlighted the development of these guidelines as a significant step to address issues such as the rights of local people, their participation, preservation of natural ecosystems, among others as PNG implements its REDD+ activities through policy-based interventions.
