11th RRI dialogue on forests, governance and climate change
Rights and Resources Initiative, RRI, organises the 11th RRI dialogue on forests, governance and climate change in The House of Commons, London, United Kingdom, 12th October 2011.
The dialogue is organised together with The Forest Peoples Programme and Forest Trends and the subject is: Status and role of public and private finance to reduce forest loss and degradation.
The meeting will examine the current state of public and private financial mechanisms for REDD+ and adaptation and contribute to developing an updated vision for the optimal design and deployment of finance to reduce forest loss and degradation - while respecting the rights and development needs of local people. This meeting will take stock of lessons learned to date regarding the possibilities of a global forest carbon market, scope for individual projects, and the experiences with national and regional public funds. The debate will aim to better understand the potentials and limits of each approach and the conditions in which one approach is more appropriate than another. The meeting will contribute to more informed and decisive negotiations on finance during the UNFCCC COP17 in Durban.
