The Forum on Readiness for REDD



The Forum is a multi-stakeholder initiative focused on practical approaches for building REDD readiness through cross-stakeholder dialogue, South-South collaboration, and linking local expertise with regional readiness efforts. The Forum operates as a neutral convening space to allow various stakeholders involved or interested in REDD readiness to build their understanding and capacity, and interact with different stakeholder groups and regions, to increase South-South dialogue, information exchange, knowledge transfer, and collaboration and consensus building on the implementation of readiness activities. The Forum relies on guidance from an advisory committee made up of developing country governments, civil society, and indigenous representatives, international NGOs, multilateral institutions, and private sector stakeholders. The Woods Hole Research Center serves as secretariat to the Forum on Readiness for REDD
