REDD & LULUCF Working Group

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change recognizes that carbon sinks (and more specifically terrestrial sinks) are being affected due to human activities related to Land Use, Land-Use Change and Forestry (LULUCF).
The CAN REDD & LULUCF Working Group coordinates advocacy and policy submissions covering a broad spectrum of work relating to the mitigation of greenhouse gases in the land-use/forestry sector. The group also engages on UN-REDD programme activities and other important mechanisms outside the Convention.
