Images: REDD+, forest Plan validation meeting

The last two days of September 2016 in Abuja featured a gathering of stakeholders who attempted a final review of draft documents of both the National Forest Monitoring System Action Plan (NFMS AP) and the National Forest Reference Emission Level/Forest Emission Levels (FRELs/FRLs).

Organised by the Nigeria REDD+ Programme, UN-REDD Programme, Cross River State Government and Federal Ministry of Environment, the forum set out to validate and adopt the documents as the roadmap to benchmark and assess REDD+ implementation in Cross River State, which is hosting the nation’s flagship REDD+ project site.
