FEEM seminar on “Reducing Emissions from Deforestation in Developing Countries under the UNFCCC – Caveats and Opportunities for Biodiversity”
The United Nations Framework Convention for Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Convention on Biodiversity (CBD) in the forest sector encourage forest conservation and sustainable management from different perspectives.
Although concerted action has so far been limited, the debate on the establishment of a mechanism to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries (REDD+) under the UNFCCC has greatly augmented the scope for cooperation. This week the FEEM seminar by Annalisa Savaresi, from the University of Copenhagen, will highlight the potential biodiversity benefits and risks of REDD+ and review the latest debate on biodiversity safeguards in the perspective of future climate and biodiversity negotiations.
