A Focus on Forests, REDD+ & Low Emission Sustainable Development
With a resounding call for more attention on forests at Rio+20, the Governors’ Climate & Forests Task Force (GCF) and CIFOR have partnered to host a cocktail reception featuring the latest subnational developments in REDD+ and low emission sustainable development (LESD). Along with presentations by the GCF Governors and Secretariat highlighting new financial resources, technological advancements, and partnerships, GCF partner Google will introduce how their Earth Engineand Earth Builder applications can support subnational REDD+ and LESD efforts. The balance of the reception will provide a networking opportunity for attendees.
This event is free to attend, is open to interested stakeholders, and follows CIFOR’s 8th Roundtable at Rio+20—Forests.
