REDD-PAC meeting in Cambridge, UK

The project held a meeting at UNEP-WCMC headquarters in Cambridge, UK. Researchers from IPEA, INPE, IIASA and UNEP-WCMC participated. This three-day meeting was the second opportunity for REDD-PAC project partners to review together the work progress and pending issues. Crucial issues such as land cover classification, tropical forestry, and relevant policy scenarios were in particular discussed.

A series of technical meetings to be held by the end of the year will lead to the presentation of preliminary results at the UNFCCC COP19 in November 2013 in Warsaw, Poland, and to Brazilian policy stakeholders in early 2014.
