REDD+ Academy Announcements

My name is Manpreet Aulakh and I am a university student studying Climate change and environment policy at the University of Leeds in the UK. I am doing my masters dissertation on the Global processes of REDD+ in the post- Paris climate change regime.I was wondering anyone who has worked with/on  REDD+  will be available for a phone interview around mid- june or july to get your view on global REDD+ negotiations and how REDD+ has evolved from the 2010 Cancun agreements to the present in its global decision- making processes in order to create  successful polices to decrease global GHG emissions. Also what are the opportunities and challenges  for  REDD+  in regards to increasing international cooperation between developing REDD+ countries and the donor developed countries.  You can email me at .

Thank you.
