The Democratic Republic of Congo is actively engaged in preparing for REDD+ implementation. In this short video produced by WWF, Tosi Mpanu Mpanu, head of the government’s official agency on REDD+, CN-REDD, describes the nation’s commitment to REDD+ and needs to scale-up REDD+ in the country.
WWF has worked with the support and cooperation of the government of DRC, local partners, and local communities to develop and implement REDD+ readiness activities in the Mai-Ndombe area of DRC. This short video begins to tell the story of this work.
A love of walking in forests in her home country of the Philippines inspired the winning entry of 13-year-old Trisha Co Reyes in the 2011 International Children’s Painting Competition on the Environment – watch Trisha’s painting come to life.
Trisha beat over 600,000 other young people to win first place in the competition, which is organised by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
