Communications & Knowledge Products

 

PNG’s REDD+ Communications and Knowledge Management strategy has been developed to map out key stakeholders’ participation in the implementation of the National REDD+ Strategy. The main goal of the communications strategy is to support the REDD+ readiness process by enhancing communication and knowledge with all relevant stakeholders on REDD+ within the context of PNG. The strategy will increase awareness raising and image building, promote and enhance communications and knowledge management, and build capacity and knowledge among all relevant stakeholder groups. To strengthen REDD+ branding a logo has been developed and endorsed by all stakeholders while a REDD+ website has also been completed to help stakeholders access information on REDD+ and developments in the country. (http://www.pngreddplus.org.pg/). PNG’s NFMS web portal has also been developed and provides spatial information on PNG’s forests helping to increase transparency of PNG REDD+ system (http://png-nfms.org/portal/).

 

 As part of capacity building and inter-agency cooperation on REDD+, a series of REDD+ Expert trainings for than 120 representatives of national government agencies, civil society organizations and the private sector were carried out in five different provinces of PNG. The trainings covered basic principles of REDD+, key differences between REDD+ in the voluntary market and under the UNFCCC, elements of the Warsaw REDD+ framework, and the nature of a REDD+ Strategy / Action Plan and how these link with the existing structures and capacities in PNG. They provided opportunities for stakeholders to both learn and through ‘real world’ exercises input into the development of the National Strategy and provide feedback on key elements of PNG’s approach to REDD+.
