The workshop was organized on December 23, 2016 at Hotel Himalaya, Lalitpur. It was organized by the REDD Implementation Centre of the Ministry of Forest and Soil Conservation, Government of Nepal and was supported by the UN-REDD Program (FAO, UNDP and UNEP). A team from ForestAction Nepal comprising of Naya Sharma Paudel, Shambhu Dangal, Rahul Karki and Anukram Adhikary was participating in the workshop to make a presentation on the UN-REDD Study entitled “Analysis of Policies and Measures in addressing drivers of deforestation and forest degradation and barriers to improved forest management”. The purpose of the presentation was to share the study’s findings and also acquire validation, feedback and comments from the participants on the study as a whole. Furthermore, the team from ForestAction Nepal will use the comments thus received to strengthen their report and eventually share it with the REDD Implementation Center, UN-REDD (Bangkok), and UNDP (Nepal) by end of December, 2016.
