Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation, as established by the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), is often referred to as “REDD+”. The UNDP REDD+ team is based in UNDP’s Bureau for Policy and Programme Support - BPPS. It is part of the Sustainable Development cluster and also works closely with the Climate Change team.
The REDD+ team is responsible for a growing portfolio. The sources of funds include: (i) the UN-REDD Programme, a collaborative partnership with FAO and UNEP; (ii) the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF); (iii) the Central African Forests Initiative (CAFI); and (iv) the Green Climate Fund (GCF). In addition, the team is responsible for other forest and climate initiatives and ensuring overall quality assurance.
UNDP’s REDD+ Team is spread globally, with management based in Geneva. Regional teams are located in UNDP’s Regional Centres in Bangkok (Asia-Pacific) and Panama (Latin America and the Caribbean), while the regional team for Africa is in Nairobi in order to be co-located with UNEP’s REDD+ Team. The regional teams support UNDP’s country offices and partners in their region. Support to UNDP country offices is coordinated closely with the Regional Bureaux through the regional centres.
The team works closely with UNDP’s Green Commodities Program (GCP) on drivers of deforestation related to agricultural commodity supply chains, the UNDP-GEF team to provide guidance on GEF-funded projects related to REDD+, and with the Low Emissions, Climate Resilient Development (LECRD) team to ensure UNDP’s efforts on REDD+ contribute to broader transformational change. The team can support the REDD+ initiatives of the regions and country offices and provide quality assurance on a full cost-recovery basis.
The UNDP REDD+ team has recently been identified to support the Governors’ Climate and Forests Task Force (GCFTF) initiative. This involves supporting the preparation and implementation of projects for the more than 30 developing country sub-national jurisdictions participating in the initiative to develop strategies and investment plans for innovative forested landscape transformation. This will be done in coordination with the secretariat for the GCFTF (based in Colorado University), the governance arrangements for the initiative, and other existing partners.
