A few weeks ago, REDD-Monitor took a look at how the Asian Development Bank appears to have changed its tune on REDD. In 2010, the ADB was promoting the region’s “huge potential to benefit from REDD+”, but by 2015 the ADB acknowledged the “considerable uncertainty about the actual contribution that REDD will make”.
At the beginning of May 2016, the Asian Development Bank will be holding its 49th Annual Meeting. The meeting will take place in Frankfurt, Germany. Over the next few weeks, a mini-series of REDD-Monitor posts will look at the ADB’s involvement in REDD, and its record in the forests of Asia.
