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)
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.
