The REDD Bulletin is back
The REDD Bulletin is part of a pilot project on promoting the effective participation of indigenous peoples in REDD processes that was initiated by the Traditional Knowledge Initiative in July 2008. The overall aim of this project is to assist with current efforts to raise awareness about REDD issues amongst indigenous people. A secondary aim of the project is to assist indigenous peoples to develop long term strategy to empower themselves and support the development of a strong voice and platform for their views in the development of REDD activities.
The REDD site is an information bulletin and blog with a specific focus on the ongoing development of an international REDD mechanism and its implications for indigenous peoples, as well as highlighting REDD projects and resources relevant to their particular needs. Following a successful 6-month pilot period from July-December 2008, and several requests from stakeholders, we are resuming this initiative to assist in the lead up to the Copenhagen discussions in December 2009. Major publications from the past 6 months have been reviewed and added to the site, and several special contributors have been appointed to provide original material in the form of on-the-ground reports from regions around the world over the next few months.
