The EU REDD Facility participates in discussions on South-South cooperation and REDD+ benefit sharing at COP 20 in Lima

South-South exchanges are an effective way to build capacity of forest and REDD+ stakeholders and develop innovative approaches to land use challenges. Increasingly, exchanges of experiences and good practices among REDD+ countries are organised and promoted, yet only a few concrete technical or political cooperation initiatives have emerged thus far. A side event organised by the EU REDD Facility and the Sustainable Amazonas Foundation (FAS) will explore the win-win rationale of South-South cooperation and share results and lessons from a few case studies. The event will take place on 11 December at the EU Pavilion from 10.30 to 12.30. More information here.

The EU REDD Facility is also presenting at a side event on ‘Benefit and burden sharing in forest policies and REDD+' organised by CIFOR. The event will take place at the EU Pavilion on 9 December from 10.30 to 12.00. Adeline Dontenville will give a presentation on ‘Challenges and lessons learnt in framing REDD+ benefit sharing in the Congo Basin'. More information here.
