Webinar Reminder: Jurisdictional and Nested REDD+ Draft Requirements

VCS will host a webinar to discuss newly released Jurisdictional and Nested REDD+ (JNR) draft requirements for the integrated, jurisdiction-wide crediting of activities that Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation and enhance forest carbon stocks (REDD+).

Thursday, 24 May
10 a.m. EST (1500 GMT)

Hosted by:
Naomi Swickard, VCS AFOLU Manager
Robert O’Sullivan, Climate Focus, North America Director

The draft JNR requirements set out the first global framework for the accounting and crediting of REDD+ activities across multiple levels, recognizing emissions reductions from policies and programs as well as projects “nested” within states, provinces or nations.

The draft requirements are open for public comment until 2 July 2012.
