Mexico National REDD+ Strategy Design Process .


CTC REDD+ MEXICO • 2009 the CTC was created. – 70 Social organizations – To analize and generate recomendations for REDD – To promote the management and disign of the national strategy of REDD+ .

REDD + Framework Basics How to stop and reverse the loss of forest and its carbon … ? Without sacrifice other objectives and principles. Reporting and Verification . both social & environmental ? How to measure the impacts of this actions? How to finance them? Identify driving causes of Deforestation and Degradation (DD) and incentives for REDD + Safeguards Reference emissions levels Short – term & Long – term Financing Institutional and Public Policies Monitoring.
