Forest Carbon Partnership Facility Receives REDD Readiness Preparation Proposals
January 31, 2011
The Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) has received five REDD Readiness Preparation Proposals (R-PP) and four draft R-PPs from FCPF participant countries during the course of January 2011.
Cambodia, Peru, Viet Nam, Ghana and Ethiopia submitted their R-PPs, while Nicaragua, Liberia, the Central African Republic and Uganda submitted draft R-PPs. The R-PPs will be evaluated by a Technical Advisory Panel and the FCPF Participants Committee. The R-PPs represent a step on the way to receiving readiness grants for up to US$3.6 million to implement the activities outlined in the R-PPs.
The agreement will assist developing countries in setting up their national inventory systems. The signing took place alongside a Training Workshop on the National System for Greenhouse Gas Inventory, which took place from 25-28 January 2011, at FAO headquarters in Rome, Italy. The agreement was signed by FAO Assistant Director-General Alexander Müller and the Coalition of Rainforest Nations (CfRN) Executive Director Kevin Conrad.
