Professional Training Program in Collaboration between RCCC UI, USAID, and Columbia University – CEES

An environmental strategic, economy, and social which is effective, efficient, and sustainable to help reducing forest conversion and carbon emisson—known as Reducing Emission from Deforestaion and forest Degradation (REDD)—has been taught by many trainers in various places. Basically, the strategy provides a carbon-trade mechanism to reduce forest conversion along with carbon emission produced from forest logging. Even though REDD mechanism has been available as a concept for time being, the execution to achieve realistic result, reducing forest conversion, conserving biodiversity, and considering the rights of local forest community was proven to be difficult.

RCCC UI together with Center for Environment, Economy, and Social (CEES) Columbia University had developed a certification training program for REDD practicians and other innovative forestry funding on the government, private, and community sector. The training was aimed to create experts who are able to carry on and control REDD program and innovative forestry funding for more effective, efficient, and sustainable.

This intensive training program will give the participants extensive knowledge and capacity to carry on innovative forest management and conservation, including mechanism of sustainable forest management payment.
