The REDD Countries Database launches for Brazil, Cameroon and Vietnam
The REDD Countries Database is a centralised and collaborative database of the diverse and rapidly evolving range of ongoing REDD activities in tropical forest owning nations. Organised by country, it summarises key information in multiple languages across a broad range of areas including policies, plans, laws, statistics, activities and financing. The REDD Countries Database does not attempt to assess activities or offer normative analysis but instead uses a common analytical framework to facilitate quick comparison within and between countries.
Three pilot countries (Brazil, Cameroon, Vietnam) were launched on the platform in June 2011, and research for eleven more countries is currently underway (Cambodia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Ghana, Guyana, Indonesia, Kenya, Laos, Peru, Sri Lanka, Tanzania). Follow @theREDDdesk on twitter for platform updates as well as the latest REDD news.
