The Oslo Tropical Forest Forum (OTFF) is a global conference gathering key policy-makers and practitioners from civil society, the private sector, and public sector organizations working to reduce and reverse tropical deforestation. It is hosted by Norad, the Norwegian Development Cooperation Agency, on behalf of Norway’s International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI).
This year, the conference will highlight some of the most pressing challenges facing decision makers and practitioners working to prevent forest loss at global, national, and sub-national levels.
Some of the key questions include:
-How can jurisdictional‐scale forest emission reductions and removals credits be included in rapidly growing voluntary and compliance‐based carbon markets while ensuring high social and environmental integrity?
-What are the opportunities to scale up support for indigenous peoples and local communities land tenure and forest management ?
-Which major challenges need to be overcome in the next few years in order to ensure transition to deforestation-free commodities?
-How can accurate and transparent monitoring information lead to improved outcomes?
-How can new trends, partnerships, and innovative communications tactics to help us become more effective advocates for conserving tropical forests and securing Indigenous and community land rights?
The conference is by invitation only, but parts of the conference will be streamed.
