Previous Dialogues (held in Washington DC and London) have focused on a variety of topics including: the role of forest governance in achieving reduced emissions from deforestation, the status of forests in the global negotiations on climate change, and the implications of Copenhagen COP15 for forest communities and Indigenous Peoples. The next, and fifth, Dialogue will take place in Washington, D.C. on 12 May and will focus particularly on issues of operationalizing standards and safeguards, and ensuring adequate recourse mechanisms, across the suite of REDD initiatives and implementing organizations.
