Images: Abuja, Calabar REDD+ validation meetings

Two separate validation workshops held recently Abuja, the federal capital city, and Calabar, the capital city of Cross River State, displayed an increasing stakeholder ownership of the National Framework Strategy and Cross River State REDD+ Strategy development process.

The forums likewise set the stage for a somewhat vital next-phase for the UN-REDD Programme in the country.

While the pilot site, Cross River State, is rounding off the Readiness phase, two new states – Nasarawa and Ondo – will soon be welcome into the UN-REDD+ fold.
