For those that are not aware, the nomination process for selecting four (4) civil society observers for the UN-REDD Programme (representing Asia, Africa, Latin America and developed countries) and three (3) civil society observers for the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) (representing Asia, Africa, and Latin America) has opened this week. Information on the process and how to nominate and apply is available in English, Spanish and French at the following link: http://www.bicusa.org/selection-process-for-un-redd-and-fcpf-observers/#sthash.0iYykTOO.dpuf
Please note that this is a process for civil society observers only, wherein Indigenous Peoples observers are selected through other means. Also, to note, the Northern civil society observer for the FCPF has already been selected and as such, is not included in this process. Last day nominations are accepted for both the UN-REDD Programme and FCPF is 5 September 2014.
