17:00 - 19:00

Trailblazing forest nations are pursuing ambitious and impactful pathways to protect and restore forests through high-integrity jurisdictional REDD+ (J-REDD+) programs. Join us or a reception to celebrate the Jurisdictional REDD+ Technical Assistance Partnership (JTAP Partnership), an emerging initiative aiming to align technical support for the critical efforts of these leaders with the rapid pace and scale needed to realize ambitious global climate targets. Reception speakers, representing leading voices from forest countries and NGO partners, will discuss this ambitious new collaboration to channel energy, expertise, and resources, in response to expressed needs from forest nations and stakeholders, to help overcome barriers to design and implementation of these crucial programs. We look forward to your engagement, ideas, and questions on this exciting opportunity to drive progress toward unlocking forest finance at the transformative scale needed to end tropical forest loss.
