At the 19th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 19) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Warsaw, Poland, in 2013, delegates adopted Decision 10/CP.19 on the coordination of support for the implementation of activities in relation to mitigation actions in the forest sector by developing countries, including institutional arrangements, agreeing to encourage national entities or focal points, parties and relevant entities financing forest-related activities to meet to discuss these matters on a voluntary basis, in conjunction with the first sessional period meetings of the subsidiary bodies.

On 8 December 2014, the first of these annual voluntary meetings convened in Lima, Peru, gathering parties, national entities or focal points, and relevant REDD+ financing entities to consider procedural matters to facilitate the discussions at future meetings, and invite input and participation from relevant bodies under the Convention, international and regional organizations, the private sector, indigenous peoples and civil society.
