From 17-21 September 2018, GFOI partners hosted a Country Needs Assessment (CNA) workshop for the Asia-Pacific region.
Hosted by the World Bank’s Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF), with from support from Australia and the GFOI’s MGD Component, this workshop tested a new and innovative systems-type approach to enabling countries to assess their own needs. The approach is based on the REDDcompass framework and will be further refined during subsequent workshops in Africa and Latin America later this year.
Establishing a globally applicable yet country-specific approach to assessing country needs is a key priority for GFOI Phase II. More to come.
