Completion of the biodiversity reports series

UNEP-WCMC announces the completion of a series of regional, national and sub-national scale spatial analyses to support the design of efficient, effective and environmentally relevant REDD+ strategies and land use policies. The reports are available for download through the Reports and papers section of the REDD-PAC website.

In collaboration with global and regional partners, UNEP-WCMC has worked with decision-makers and technical specialists in Africa (the Congo Basin and Uganda), Latin America (Peru) and Asia (China, the Philippines, and Vietnam) to develop mapping tailored to the specific needs of each context.

The mapping can be used to assist decision makers in planning for REDD+ and other land use in ways that generate multiple benefits, such as biodiversity and social benefits and climate change adaptation. It can also help to explore potential contributions of REDD+ actions to meeting other international policy commitments, such as the Aichi Biodiversity Targets.
