Mongolia the world’s first boreal country to submit a Reference Level to the UNFCC

Mongolia recently submitted to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change its forests reference level. The UNFCCC is the global authority for countries to report on progress towards climate change and the forests reference level is in essence a simple baseline which shows historical greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation and forest degradation. This provides a baseline from which future performance of forest management can be measured.  The UN- REDD Program are supporting the government to develop a National REDD+ Strategy to introduce improved policies and measures to reduce emissions and improve the benefits from managing forests in a sustainable way.
