REDD Workshop

The Planet Action REDD+ Workshop held in Paris on Oct 26 was a huge success. With a stimulating mix of more than 80 climate change and forest experts, scientists, economists, investors, grassroots NGOs, technology providers and development agencies, both participants and panelists enjoyed a very full day of exchanges.

More than one half of projects supported by Planet Action touch on forest issues - deforestation impacting animal habitat; the importance of forests to secure fresh water resources... This is the main reason for bringing together Planet Action projects and specialists to share experience from the ground and look towards Durban and the Cop 17 Conference in December.

See below the presentations made during the event.
