  • United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
    Over a decade ago, most countries joined an international treaty, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, to begin to consider what can be done to reduce global warming and to cope with whatever temperature increases are inevitable.
  • Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is the leading international body for the assessment of climate change. It was established by the United Nations Environment Programme and the World Meteorological Organization to provide the world with a clear scientific view on the current state of knowledge in climate change and its potential environmental and socio-economic impacts.
  • UN-REDD Programme
    The United Nations Collaborative Programme on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation in Developing Countries. The Programme was launched in 2008 to assist developing countries prepare and implement national REDD+ strategies, and builds on the convening power and expertise of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the United Nations Development Programme and the United Nations Environment Programme.
  • NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory
    The Earth System Research Laboratory was formed to pursue a broad and comprehensive understanding of the Earth system. This system comprises many physical, chemical and biological processes that need to be dynamically integrated to better predict their behavior over scales from local to global and periods of minutes to millennia.
  • Forest Carbon Partnership Facility
    The Forest Carbon Partnership Facility assists developing countries in their efforts to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation and foster conservation, sustainable management of forests, and enhancement of forest carbon stocks, called REDD+, by providing value to standing forests.
  • The REDD Desk
    The REDD Desk is a new collaborative platform for REDD and REDD Readiness, initiated by the Global Canopy Programme and the Forum on Readiness for REDD, represented by the Brazilian-based Amazon Environmental Research Institute.
  • Pact REDD Glossary
    This glossary is a comprehensive reference guide to encourage greater understanding of REDD terminology. The glossary contains terms related to verification, validation, carbon finance, voluntary market standards, and other REDD topics.
  • Center for Climate and Energy Solutions
    Through analysis and dialogue, the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions is working with governments and stakeholders to identify practical and effective options for the post-2012 international climate framework.
  • Forest Carbon Portal
    The Forest Carbon Portal, via Ecosystem Marketplace, is a project of Forest Trends, and a leading source of news, data, and analytics on markets and payments for ecosystem services (such as water quality, carbon sequestration, and biodiversity).
  • Center for International Forestry Research
    The Center for International Forestry Research is a nonprofit, global facility dedicated to advancing human wellbeing, environmental conservation and equity. They conduct research that enables more informed and equitable decision making about the use and management of forests in less-developed countries.
