The conference was jointly organized by I-REDD+ and the ProCit project. See the separate conference website.


Opportunities for REDD+ in degraded and complex landscapes - I-REDD+ side-event at COP19, Warsaw

The side-event was organized by I-REDD+ and REDD-ALERT and hosted by the European Commission at the EU Pavilion on 15th November 2013, National Stadium, Warsaw, Poland. Ole Mertz, Louis Verchot, Nicholas Berry and Dirk Pflugmacher presented I-REDD+ new advances on reference emission levels, carbon stock measurement and remote sensing based monitoring as also presented in I-REDD+ Policy Brief no. 3. The event was opened by Serena Pontiglio from the Directorate General of Research, European Commission. The event was attended by about 45 participants that expressed their satisfaction with getting an overview of challenges and opportunities for monitoring carbon stocks for REDD+. The presentations can be found on the links below:

A stepwise approach to reference levels/ Louis Verchot, CIFOR

Realising emission reductions in mosaic landscapes. Challenges for quantifying carbon density/ Nicholas Berry, University of Edinburgh

Is remote sensing based monitoring of deforestation and forest degradation feasible in dynamic landscapes?/ Dirk Pflugmacher, Humboldt Universität zu Berlin


EU side event at COP18, Doha: is the window of opportunity for REDD+ closing

The side-event was organized jointly by REDD-ALERT and I-REDD+ and took place in the EU Pavillion at the Qatar National Convention Centre on 29th November 2012. Daniel Müller, Ole Mertz, Meine van Noordwijk and Louis Verchot participated for I-REDD+, and the results of I-REDD+ Policy Brief no. 2 were presented. All presentations are available on the ICRAF/ASB website.

The event was successful and had an attendance of about 60 participants. Several party negotiators were present and found the results presented at the event very useful for the continued negotiations of REDD+. Unfortunately, no further agreements on REDD+ were made at COP18 as the negotiations regarding MRV were postponed due to disagreements on verification issues in particular. However, the I-REDD+ policy brief was timely as it addressed MRV and our local focus was well received.


Conference on science based measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) systems for REDD+ in Southeast Asia, November 2012

The I-REDD+ projects organizes a conference aimed at regional policy-makers in Southeast Asia on 9th November 2012 at the Army Hotel, Hanoi, Vietnam. The focus of the conference is on how science can contribute to developing Measurement, verification and reporting (MRV) systems. Participation is free, but please register as mentioned in the conference programme:

Second I-REDD+ Workshop, November 2012

The second I-REDD+ workshop will be held on 5-8 November 2012 in Tam Dao and Hanoi, Vietnam, hosted by the Centre for Agricultural research and Ecological Studies  (CARES), Hanoi University of Agriculture, Vietnam. 


Inception workshop, February 2011

The workshop was held on 22-26 february 2011 in Vientiane, Laos and the main purpose of was to ensure that all project participants meet and discuss the activities in the seven work packages. The main outputs of the workshop were detailed planning and division of task in each work package and development and coordination of field work in Indonesia, Laos, Vietnam and China in 2011 and 2012. In addition, the first general assembly and scientific steering committee meetings were held during the workshop.
