Ecuador is the second country worldwide that has finalized its REDD+ readiness process as defined by the Warsaw Framework. It is now eligible to receive REDD+ Result Based Payments for the reduction of emissions from deforestation measured during the period 2009-14 and reported to the UNFCCC. This reduction of deforestation puts Ecuador on track to be one of the first countries globally to comply with its commitment under the New York Declaration on Forests. It is also a strong signal for companies committed to removing deforestation from their supply chains and willing to invest in Ecuador. The implementation of Ecuador’s REDD+ Action Plan will further scale up national efforts to reduce deforestation in the country, while increasing its agricultural productivity, and allow Ecuador to contribute to the mitigation of climate change as agreed under the Paris Agreement.

The situation of forests in Viet Nam is rather unique. The country significantly increased its overall forest cover from 27% in 1993 to 41% in 2016. The less bright side of things is that, in parallel, natural forests remained threatened, degraded and depleted – and with them, the living conditions for millions of Viet Namese people, as well as the wellbeing of plants, animals and humans alike. The country’s Government decided to take strong action to correct this, and has recently approved two significant Decisions aimed at increasing the size and quality of forests and combatting climate change. Viet Nam aims to expand forest cover to 42% of the country surface, to reach 14.4 million hectares by 2020. But there’s more than replanting trees involved.

In the framework of the capacity building efforts for the development of the National REDD+ Strategy supported by the UN-REDD Programme, the REDD+ Academy became one of the best tools to reach afrodescendant and indigenous communities, national and regional institutions. Moreover, it has now been incorporated in the training contents used by instructors of the National Learning Service (SENA) – a Colombian public institution focused on professional formation, a government initiative to develop education and foment employment – thus allowing the REDD+ Academy to reach hundreds of apprentices throughout the country.
