The Nakau Programme – Western Pacific Islands Regional Payments for Ecosystem Services Programme

Regional Pacific NGO Live & Learn will announce the commercial launch of a rainforest protection initiative designed to lead to reduced greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation that pays rural landowners to care for their forests. Speakers include indigenous participants and the representative of a Swedish business that helps companies offset their emissions through the initiative.

The Nakau Programme is a socially responsible approach to REDD+ and is the first of its kind to emerge from highly vulnerable Small Island Developing States. It takes an ethical, community-based approach and has a combined focus on climate change adaptation and mitigation.
