Dissemination

REDDAFREDDAF dissemination aimed to spread the outcome of the project within the REDD User and Scientific Communities in general and within the case study countries in particular. In this respect, partners participated in various scientific conferences and workshops, REDD conferences (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Conference of Parties and Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice -COPs and SBSTAs) likewise workshops in the User communities of CAR and Cameroon.
