The meeting of the REDD+ Business Initiative (RBI) on 13 May was successful. About 30 participants discussed the importance of forest conservation for achievingthe climate goals.
They were informed about the background of REDD+, as well asthe REDD+ Business Initiative. Jeffrey Storm (Albelli) explained the motivation of companies to participate in RBI. Johan Kieft, head of the UN REDD+ program in Indonesia, explained his efforts to set up a REDD+ pilot on Kalimantan in which RBI will be involved.
Finally it was concluded that it would be good to organize a similarmeeting again this autumn, primarily aimed at politics.
