Environment Ministry released India’s National REDD+ Strategy: Details, Features, Aim, Highlights

Union Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC) has released National Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) strategy for India. 

The National REDD+ strategy aimed at achieving climate change mitigation by incentivizing forest conservation.

This National REDD+ strategy will soon be communicated to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

The National REDD+ strategy has been prepared by Indian Council of Forestry Research & Education (ICFRE), Dehradun. It is one of the tools to further supplement India’s commitment to the 2015 Paris agreement.

This National REDD+ strategy will support the empowerment of youth cadres as community foresters to lead the charge at a local level.

Under the National REDD+ strategy, Green Skill Development programme will be launched for imparting forestry-related specialised skills among the youth.

The National REDD+ strategy will help India to fulfill its nationally determined contribution (NDC) commitments and will also contribute to the livelihood of forest dependent population.

The National REDD+ strategy will help to enhance efforts for forest conservation and enhance the productivity of forest ecosystems. It takes into consideration the important role played by tribals, other forest-dwelling people and society as a whole in reiterating India’s commitment to the Paris Agreement.
