The REDD+ database aims to make information on Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) preparedness activities and projects available in a succinct manner to forest stakeholders and other interested groups, with the objective of supporting efforts to achieve climate change mitigation, resource conservation and positive development outcomes through sustainable forest management.
Deforestation contributes to climate change by reducing the potential for forests to act as sinks and stores of carbon and by releasing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases (GHGs) into the atmosphere from forest biomass and soils.
REDD+ projects can now be found in many developing countries and could provide important information and lessons for the development of national REDD+ systems as well as for the international climate change negotiations.
The REDD+ Online Database provides:
- REDD+ project profiles,
- a REDD+ project matrix,
- National REDD+ reports and
- International REDD+ event briefs.
The Project Profiles are created using publicly available documents, and key elements are presented in the REDD+ Project Matrix for easy look up and comparison. The database will be periodically extended and updated, and IGES welcomes information that is provided for this purpose.
