This regional level project operating in Bhutan, India, Myanmar and Nepal was designed to assist the countries to develop technical capacity in REDD+ processes which the countries are undertaking. As a regional level project, the project’s objective is to improve the conditions for implementing REDD+ measures to mitigate climate change that are socially and environmentally sound in four Himalayan countries. At the same time, the multiple benefits of REDD+ help the project systematically consider climate risks and the potential for adaptive capacity to climate change of the local population. ICIMOD coordinates the project at regional level. However, REDD+ focal authorities of partner countries coordinate the project at national level. Each of the partner countries need to sign a letter of agreement (LOA) with ICIMOD and develop country specific plans and programs to be implemented by themselves.
