Over a decade ago, most countries joined an international treaty -- the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) -- to begin to consider what can be done to reduce global warming and to cope with whatever temperature increases are inevitable. More recently, a number of nations approved an addition to the treaty: the Kyoto Protocol, which has more powerful (and legally binding) measures.

The UN-REDD Programme was launched as a collaborative initiative between the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO). The Programme’s main aim is to contribute to the development of capacity for implementing REDD and to support the international dialogue for the inclusion of a REDD mechanism in a post-2012 climate regime. The UN-REDD Programme will initially run until March 2010.

Recognizing that UNFCCC deliberations on the future of the climate change regime are underway, including discussions on a future financial architecture and funding strategy for climate change, Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) together with developed and developing countries and other stakeholders have developed the Climate Investment Funds (CIF) as an interim measure to scale up assistance to developing countries and strengthen the knowledge base in the development community.

The LINKS project builds dialogue amongst traditional knowledge holders, natural and social scientists, resource managers and decision-makers to enhance biodiversity conservation and secure an active and equitable role for local communities in resource governance. The survival of indigenous knowledge as a dynamic and vibrant resource within rural and indigenous communities depends upon its continuing transmission from generation to generation.
