REDD+ Course for 2018 Intake

Natural Resources Management program of the Department of Development and Sustainability is pleased to announced the new course on REDD+. This course is available from August 2018 intake and Dr. Nophea Sasaki will be the instructor.

Brief Introduction to the REDD+ course

The REDD+ or Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation, plus Conservation of Forests, Sustainable Management of Forests, and Enhancement of Forest Carbon Stocks is the climate change mitigation scheme of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The entry into force of the Paris Climate Agreement further strengthens the need for the REDD+ scheme for achieving mitigation target set out in the Nationally Determined Contributions. The course objective is to provide students with most recent knowledge of the REDD+, its policy and rules; forest carbon accounting with modern technologies; methodologies for identification of the drivers of deforestation and forest degradation, for introduction of the appropriate REDD+ activities for reducing the drivers, and for measurement of performance; and REDD+ development and financing.
