Climate and Forest

Implementing inclusive forest solutions to the climate crisis one country at a time.

Our work in Geneva and beyond

UNDP’s climate and forest portfolio works with over 30 countries to support the design and implementation of national policies and measures to reduce deforestation and manage forests sustainably. Our programmes support governments to achieve their Nationally Determined Contributions and mitigate climate change transparently, increase access to climate finance for the forest sector and drive equitable forest solutions for Indigenous Peoples and local communities.  

In Geneva, our hub supports our global team and flagship programmes with technical assistance, high-level multi-stakeholder policy dialogues, advance REDD+ finance and enhance the implementation of forest management. Throughout implementation, UNDP strives to ensure that climate-forest solutions are gender-responsive, wherein all those involved are equitably and actively engaged in and benefit from such efforts.
