REDD+ Global Partnership

According to a document signed in Oslo (Norway) in May 2010, the REDD+ Global Partnership brings a set of voluntary actions to develop issues related to the REDD mechanism. These actions are parallel to those under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which must, in fact, establish the future REDD mechanism.

The document says: “The core objective of the Partnership is to contribute to the global battle against climate change by serving as an interim platform for the partners to scale up REDD+ actions and finance, and to that end to take immediate action, including improving the effectiveness, efficiency, transparency, and coordination of REDD+ initiatives and financial instruments, to facilitate, among other things, knowledge transfer, capacity enhancement, mitigation actions, and technology development and transfer.”

In this regard, the partnership must act as a channel to coordinate existing REDD+ mechanisms and projects and to identify and resolve gaps and overlaps of possible funding.
