Hosted by the Norwegian and International Climate and Forest Initiative, Oslo REDD Exchange aims to renew the forests and climate change agenda in light of experience to date, and respond to rapidly changing physical, financial, and political landscapes. 

REDD stands for “Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation in Developing Countries”. REDD+ goes beyond deforestation and forest degradation, and includes the role of conservation, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks.  Read more about REDD+ here .


REDD+ has been on the international and national policy arena for 5 years, and significant progress has been made by leading forest nations, the international community and the civil society – but many challenges still need to be overcome before REDD+ is effective.


The conference will gather more than 400 representatives of civil society, REDD+ and donor governments, researchers, multilateral organizations and the private sector.  


Conference participants will identify the most critical constraints to the successful establishment and implementation of REDD+ initiatives, and debate the most promising ideas for producing results at landscape, jurisdictional, and national scales, and how the international community may most effectively contribute.
