Reducing emission from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries (REDD) along with conservation and sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stock, collectively referred as “REDD+” has been introduced as the most significant mechanism for early actions towards limiting global temperature to 2o C. REDD+ has been discussed under UNFCCC forum for more than a decade. Now, methodological guidance has been agreed under UNFCCC and several efforts have been taken for the implementation of REDD+ at the International level.

Many countries have prepared their national REDD+ strategies at national and sub-national level, so that REDD+ can be implemented effectively and efficiently with minimal adverse impacts. Keeping this in view, ICFRE in collaboration with ICIMOD organized a one day workshop on “National REDD+ Strategy and Action Plan for India: Issues and Challenges” on 30 August, 2016 at ICFRE, Dehradun, India. ICFRE is thankful to ICIMOD for providing support for the workshop, and is pleased to bring out the proceedings of the workshop and is looking forward for future cooperation with regional and international organizations for making REDD+ workable in India.
