Developing Effective National REDD Programmes; REDD and NAMAs

The report analyses the REDD and NAMA negotiations and linkages between the two, including the pros and cons of including REDD as a NAMA.

The REDD negotiations are more advanced than the NAMA negotiations. While still separate agenda items, there are a number of Parties that wish to include REDD under the NAMA umbrella. With this in mind, this report identifies the key issues under negotiation for NAMAs, Parties’ positions on these key issues, and analyzes the similarities and differences between concepts being negotiated for REDD and NAMAs. Finally we weigh the advantages and disadvantages of including REDD as a NAMA, and makes suggestions of how this could happen.
