Developing accounting frameworks to reduce emissions and strengthen regional forest conservation

 Developing accounting frameworks to reduce emissions and strengthen regional forest conservation
08 November 2013

LEAF recently held two technical meetings in Malaysia and Cambodia to discuss the development of national Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) accounting frameworks. The meetings convened government, private sector and REDD+ representatives to discuss ways to monitor and account for forest emissions at the national level, and to assess how subnational and project-level REDD+ activities and investment can support forest conservation. The October 30 event in Malaysia was organized in collaboration with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment and relied on LEAF’s Decision Support Tool on Integrated REDD+ Accounting Frameworks. The November 4 meeting in Cambodia, through collaboration with the Cambodian REDD+ Secretariat and the USAID-funded Supporting Forests and Biodiversity (SFB) program, drew from LEAF’s Survey and Analysis of REDD+ Projects in Cambodia. These meetings, along with related workshops in Lao PDR and Vietnam, form part of LEAF’s work to assist in the development of policy and market incentives to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across the region.
