The UN-REDD Programme is pleased to announce the launch of the Second Edition of its successful REDD+ Academy Learning Journals, making this valuable knowledge resource available to REDD+ policymakers, practitioners and communities worldwide. Covering twelve key REDD+ topics, the REDD+ Academy Learning Journals have been revised and updated by some of the world’s leading REDD+ experts to reflect REDD+ advancements in the Paris agreement, as well as showcasing Partner Country achievements through case studies.

The REDD+ Academy was designed to support developing countries to gain the knowledge and capacities needed to deliver REDD+ at the scale required to match the global climate change mitigation challenge. Two years ago, the UN-REDD Programme launched the first REDD+ Academy – organized as a live, regional learning forum in Asia-Pacific, which then expanded to Africa and the Latin America/Caribbean regions. Nationally focused training events followed, strengthening the capacity of more than one thousand UN-REDD Partner Country participants in 2016.

In order to expand learning opportunities, the UN-REDD Programme in collaboration with UNITAR's UN CC:Learn Secretariat has developed the REDD+ Academy online e-course, which saw 4200 enrolments in 2016.
