EU Pavilion Side Event at COP18: Potential synergies between REDD+ and sustainable forest management in tropical areas

04 Dec 2012,

The Side-event will present the lessons learned from a project funded by the French Globlal Environment Fund (FFEM) and the French Development Agency (AFD), and carried out in Central Africa and Brazil (FORAFAMA project) by CIFOR, ONFI, CIRAD, FRM, TEREA and IRD.

The FORAFAMA project seeks to summarise available knowledge on the links between forest management and climate change in Central Africa and in Amazonia, to support pilot projects in forest concessions, and to contribute to strengthening the positions of states and forest societies in future discussions on the implementation of the REDD+ process.
