Three country teams, from Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Vietnam, visited the Cambodia REDD+ Programme to learn about Cambodian experiences on stakeholder engagement and communications and to exchange their own experiences from October 30th to November 1st. Other participants came from Nepal, Pakistan and Papua New Guinea.
The civil society in Cambodia self-selected eighteen representatives to form the Cambodia REDD+ Consultation Group (CG). These eighteen members were elected from nine stakeholder groups: academia; international non-governmental organisations (NGOs); national NGOs; indigenous peoples; civil society organisations (CSOs); private sector; community forest network; community protected area network; and community fishery network.

Welcome to Cambodia REDD+
Deforestation and forest degradation contribute to increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere which leads to climate change. Cambodia is participating in international efforts to mitigate climate change and reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation while also pursuing other national goals for society and the environment. This website provides a “one-step” site to access all information about REDD+ in Cambodia.
