The following section outlines results across the 16 countries and Lower Mekong region that were actively supported by UNREDD in 2021 through technical assistance and national programmes. A traffic-light colour code is used to give a snapshot of progress in each country against the two delivery-support mechanisms that the Programme used in 2021, namely technical assistance (TA, comprising technical assistance provided to ongoing national programmes and technical assistance for REDD+ implementation) and national programmes (NP).
TRAFFIC LIGHT SYSTEM
Each country has identified the type of support received from UN-REDD and the status of implementation. In the case of multiple types of support, each is listed separately. Under the traffic-light system, the implementation status of each type of support is identified as follows:
Completed: All activities have been completed in 2021; the programme is pending closure or closed.
On track: All activities are under way in accordance with the 2021 annual workplan.
Delayed: : Activities have been delayed. The cause of the delay and solutions to ensure the programme’s successful completion ar e briefly outlined in the Challenges and Solutions section.
In order to simplify country updates, the following abbreviations for the pillars of the Warsaw Framework will be used when discussing progress against it:
NS/AP: National REDD+ Strategy or Action Plan
FREL/FRL: forest reference emission level/forest reference level
NFMS: national forest monitoring system
SIS: safeguards information system
