On the fourth of July 2019, the UN-REDD Programme of Argentina is organizing the Closure Event of the National UN-REDD Programme in Buenos Aires.

The event aims at presenting the advances of the country in the preparation of the REDD+ pillars towards the reduction of emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, the conservation and the increase of the carbon stock in the forests, and their sustainable management.

At the same time, the event wants to offer as space for dialogue on forestry climate politics in which, among others, the next steps of the implementation of the REDD+ mechanism will be discussed. 

The event consists of five panel discussions, addressing the four pillars of REDD+ and wrapping up with a discussion on experiences of working towards payments for results. 

Panel 1: National Policy on Forests and Climate Change

Panel 2: National Action Plan on Forests and Climate Change

Panel 3: REDD+ and Safeguards

Panel 4: Strengthening the National System for Forest Monitoring

Panel 5: REDD+ - from the preparation phase towards payments for results
