Last September 02-05, 30 participants from 19 countries attended TFD’s 4Fs Dialogue to dive deeper into the question how to balance the growing global demand for Food, Fuel, Fiber and Forests (4Fs).
On the 2nd and 3rd of December The Forests Dialogue presented at two side-events during the COP20 in Lima, Peru, on REDD+ Benefit Sharing. These events were complementary to the release of the latest TFD review on the topic and a more specific report on the country options for Peru. To enrich the conversation TFD in collaboration with IUCN invited panelists from all over the world to talk about REDD+ Benefit Sharing.
LIMA, Peru – A newly released report, tilted Considerations for REDD+ Benefit Sharing in Peru, highlights practical tools for REDD+ Benefit Sharing including rights-based approaches and conservation agreements. The report, released by The Forests Dialogue (TFD) and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), also reflects on key lessons learnt through a multi-stakeholder field-based dialogue held in San Martin and Lima, Peru, in March 2014.
