Climate change, REDD+
A national network of 400 organizations working on climate change is established in the Democratic Republic of the Congo
After two years of work throughout the country, and a series of consultations with local communities and civil society organizations, the Groupe de Travail Climat REDD+ Rénové (GTCRR) was created in 2015. With the support of CAP!, as well as a group of national and international consultants, the network produced a communications strategy, an internal structuring model and an advocacy strategy. GTCRR was thus able to actively participate in the COP21 and make its voice heard.
The Ivory Coast’s national REDD+ strategy receives approval from the country’s government
The United Nations Development Program is working hard to develop its REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) activities in the Ivory Coast, in collaboration with the country’s Ministry of Environment. CAP! supported the final stages of the national REDD+ strategy: particular attention was paid to the overall coherence of this key document and to the drafting of a summary for decision-makers which convinced them to fully engage in the climate-change program.
