With climate deals signed, the world is now gearing up for action. The 22nd Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP22) aimed to take global action forward on achieving the priorities of the Paris Agreement, which came into effect just days before the event held from 7-18 November in Marrakesh, Morocco.
Forests and landscapes will play a key role in the new global climate and development agenda. The Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) brought the latest scientific research, insights and experiences to discussions held alongside the negotiations. See below for details on CIFOR’s involvement.
Sustainable land and forest management will play an important role in meeting the targets of the UNFCCC Paris Agreement – but how can this be monitored? In this discussion, CIFOR and partners explore the rules and responsibilities involved in ensuring transparency and accountability in this global process. Comparative case studies highlight the role of civil society and independent monitoring systems for transparency, as well as other measures for safeguards and equity.
