UN-REDD/LECB Workshop for Sharing National Experiences, Zambia 25-27 February 2014

Two global support programmes – the UN-REDD Programme and the UNDP Low Emission Capacity-Building (LECB) Programme jointly hosted parallel capacity building workshops providing space for sharing experiences on development of NFMS for REDD+ and national GHG inventory systems. Though each programme’s workshop had distinct objectives and scopes, the issues were closely linked and contained parallel sessions, with opportunities for joint sessions and engagement between participants.
