Ahead of the 2018 Asia-Pacific Rainforest Summit (APRS), the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) will hold a Global Comparative Study on REDD+ Media Training, which will include a Global Landscape Forum Digital Summit.
Join journalists in Yogyakarta on 21 April 2018 for scientist Cynthia Maharani’s presentations, “Current status: assessment of subnational REDD+ initiative on the ground” and “Current status: REDD+ performance assessment. Experiences from Indonesia, Vietnam, Myanmar and Laos.” During the digital summit, participants will also be able to ask questions and join the discussion.
Cynthia Maharani is currently a Senior Research Scientist on CIFOR’s GCS REDD+ program, where she works with boundary partners from Ethiopia, Myanmar, Guyana and Indonesia to coproduce REDD+ knowledge. Her presentations will give participants up-to-date information on the subnational REDD+ programs and performance assessment information for the region, making it a useful event for journalists, students and other interested in the program, especially its progress in Southeast Asia.
