The 12th Rights and Resources Initiative (RRI) Dialogue on Forests, Governance and Climate Change will consider the theme “Scaling-Up Strategies to Reduce Emissions and Deliver Development in Forest Areas”. Participants will identify the major emerging threats to forests and take stock of proven strategies to reduce emissions, and will assess the potential for expanding and becoming even more effective. They will also consider promising new initiatives to address the current and future drivers of deforestation and degradation, and the long-standing constraints of underdevelopment and weak governance. This event was originally scheduled to be the 13th RRI Dialogue, but the event that was originally scheduled as the 12th RRI Dialogue was rescheduled from October to January 2013.
