More information on sessions:

Session 1)

Zero Deforestation Group: Paving the road to Zero Deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon

Zero Deforestation Working Group: Greenpeace Brazil, Imazon,  IPAM (Instituto de Pesquisa Ambiental da Amazônia),  ICV – Instituto Centro de Vida, Imaflora, Instituto Socioambiental, WWF Brazil, TNC Brazil. 

Deforestation rates are still high in the  Brazilian Amazon  and the prospects are bleak given the continued dismantling of environmental policies in a context of political and economic crises. This session aims to present and discuss pathways to be taken in order to reach zero deforestation by 2020 despite the challenging scenario, based on a document elaborated by the Zero Deforestation Working Group. 

 

Session 2)

IIASA, INPA, and NWF: Forest and Climate Solutions: Synergies between NDCs, REDD+, and the Private Sector

National Wildlife Federation, Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas da Amazônia (INPA); IIASA (International Institute of Applied Systems Analysis) 

​Private Sector efforts to reduce deforestation driven by major agricultural commodities are accelerating, and aiming to support government efforts at the jurisdictional and national scales. We present results of new research at the property-level, jurisdictional and national scale to determine whether private sector initiatives are effective at supporting the goals of REDD+ and NDCs, and make recommendations for increased effectiveness.

 

Session 3)

UN-REDD Programme, and FOEN, UNFF: Mobilizing finance for forests and REDD+: the key role of national forest and REDD+ finance strategies
