The first session in the REDD+ webinar series, presented by GCF Principal Forest Specialist Juan Chang, covered general topics on how GCF works and how to access GCF Resources for the forest and land use sector.
REDD+ refers to a process moderated by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) which supports countries' efforts to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, and foster conservation, sustainable management of forests, and enhancement of forest carbon stocks.

GCF offers support for REDD+ across all three phases. GCF funding for REDD+ includes support for forests as part of a wider landscape. This includes increasing resilience and enhancing livelihoods of the most vulnerable people, communities, and regions; increasing people’s health and well-being; enhancing food and water security; and improving the resilience of ecosystems and ecosystem services.
GCF holds regular webinars on REDD+ to share progress made, discuss current topics and provide greater clarity on relevant issues on forests and climate.
