Uazu, thank you for your interest in our activities. I would be happy to make future arrangements to have you participate in other events when funding is available.


For this event on REDD we had some funding to cater for costs to engage with the EAC mainly. It is our intention to seek alternative resources to host similar events not only in our Member States but the whole of the continent.


Please send us your co-ordinates (name, address, office/school etc) for inclusion in our mailing list.

“Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+)” is an effort to create a financial value for the carbon stored in forests, offering incentives for developing countries to reduce carbon emissions from forested lands and to invest in a sustainable low-carbon development supported by the United Nations ( <http://www.un-redd.org> http://www.un-redd.org). Several African countries evaluated REDD+ as a valuable mechanism for sustainable development and have already established initial schemes at forestry related national ministries. 


A major limitation for a successful and sustainable implementation of REDD+ in many African countries is the lack of technical capacity required to establish a REDD readiness program. RCMRD in partnership with RapidEye (www.rapideye), one of the leading satellite imagery providers seeks to strengthen these efforts to enable national authorities to improve existing capabilities to carry out IPCC compliant carbon stock assessments while also support the implementation of a national REDD+ Measurement, Reporting & Verification (MRV) system.


RapidEye imagery has been successfully used globally in the scope of many REDD initiatives ( <http://www.rapideye.com/upload/RE_REDD.pdf> http://www.rapideye.com/upload/RE_REDD.pdf)


Please see concept note as attached.
