Call for Nominations for CSO Representatives to the UN-REDD Programme is now open!
The Rights and Resources Initiative is currently helping to coordinate the Civil Society Organization nomination process for the UN-REDD Policy Board. The UN-REDD Programme recognizes that the success of REDD initiatives depends on the engagement and ownership of all stakeholders in forest landscapes, including indigenous peoples and other forest-dwelling communities, as well as local, national, regional, and international organizations that comprise civil society. Thus, it is a matter of priority to ensure that representatives of civil society are supported to engage in REDD initiatives in order to provide essential expertise and ensure transparency and accountability in all program activities.
Civil Society Organizations are invited to submit nominations for representatives to serve on the UN-REDD Programme Policy Board. The call for nominations closes on 11 September 2009. Voting for CSO nominees will take place from 14 - 28 September 2009. For more information and to access nomination and voting instructions, click here.
