The Iwokrama International Centre and the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) are pleased to invite you to participate in a Knowledge Sharing Event – Sharing Insights Across REDD+ Countries on June 6, 2017, at 09:00AM in the Ogle Room, Herdmanston Lodge, Lamaha and Peter Rose Streets, Queenstown, Georgetown, Guyana.
This event is part of the Global Comparative Study on REDD+ (GCS REDD+) project which CIFOR has been implementing since 2009. The project takes stock of international, national and sub-national REDD+ experiences to identify challenges and opportunities in designing and implementing REDD+ policies and projects through comparative studies of REDD+ implementation in thirteen countries around the world including Brazil, Vietnam, Cameroon, Nepal and Peru (https://www.cifor.org/gcs/).
The first phase of research focused on overall design issues and aimed to build a strong research-based knowledge. The second phase centered on generating new knowledge to inform and facilitate processes of transformational change within the REDD+ policy arena, and on understanding the performance of REDD+ policy processes, measures and practices.
This current third phase of GCS REDD+ aims to support REDD+ decision makers by assessing REDD+ impact and providing critical analysis of REDD+ in terms of effectiveness, efficiency and equity (3Es), and includes Myanmar and Guyana as additions to the study.
