Calabar UN-REDD+ stakeholder forum in photos

Six broad stakeholder groups including forest dependent communities; government ministries, departments and agencies (GMDAs); media; academia; civil society organisations; and private sector players gathered for three days last week in Calabar, Cross River State (CRS), courtesy of the United Nations collaborative mechanism on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (UN-REDD+) Programme.

The REDD+ Readiness Programme in Nigeria is being implemented in Cross River as pilot state. The Stakeholder Forum is regarded as the ultimate platform to coordinate stakeholders’ participation and contribution to the strategic direction of the REDD+ Programme implementation in state. The forum likewise validated the Participatory Governance Assessment Draft Report and the Community Based REDD+ Draft Country Plan.
