New publication: 'Biodiversity and Livelihoods: REDD-plus'
The introduction to the booklet reads:
'The importance of biodiversity and livelihood aspects within the design of REDD-plus has been recognized at many levels. Achieving these multiple benefits will require new levels of collaboration among different actors at national and international levels.
'This brochure demonstrates how measures and policies can be shaped to simultaneously address climate change, biodiversity loss and poverty. It identifies opportunities for synergies and mutual enhancement of the objectives of international agreements, particularly the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), as well as
decisions taken by the United Nations (UN) General Assembly following the recommendations of the UN Forum on Forests (UNFF).'
