Type of publication:

This sourcebook seeks to take stock of the knowledge, approaches, tools and initiatives that have been developed for REDD+ and to facilitate their integration into multi-disciplinary higher education programmes, especially in countries actively engaged in REDD+ readiness efforts and preparations. It aims to provide guidance on curriculum development and integration of REDD+ concepts and methods into relevant postgraduate programmes, facilitate access of REDD+ materials to universities available in the UN-REDD Programme and engage university networks as strategic platforms and centres of excellence for mainstreaming REDD+ education research, development and outreach, and to build, through university education systems, the professional capacity and leadership needed for reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation. The sourcebook is structured around a series of 12 modules covering the different aspects of REDD+.
