REDD+ in Vietnam: Integrating National and Subnational Approaches

There is a general consensus in the UNFCCC and the international REDD+ community that emission reductions and removals must ultimately be accounted for at the national level. “Nested” approaches to REDD+ have been discussed widely in this context, whereby projects and/or subnational programs are integrated into higher-level accounting in order to provide a coherent picture of countries’ progress in reducing emissions. This report, which was funded by NORAD, USAID, JICA and DFID, provides background information and advice to the Government of Vietnam and stakeholders in Vietnam on how to integrate national and subnational approaches to REDD+ in Vietnam.  To learn more about REDD+ in Vietnam, check out the Lowering Emissions in Asia's Forests (LEAF) program.
