United Nations Collaborative Programme on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation in Developing Countries (UN-REDD)

The United Nations Collaborative Programme on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation in Developing Countries (UN-REDD)  programme is a collaboration between Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and UNEP. A multi-donor trust fund was established in July 2008 to assist developing countries to participate in future REDD mechanisms. In the Asia Pacific region, a number of country programme activities are currently underway, which support the capacities of national governments to prepare and implement national REDD strategies with the active involvement of all stakeholders, including indigenous peoples and other forest-dependent communities.
