The PRP’s work focuses on two very specific aims. The first, to identify appropriate incentives to encourage rainforest nations to slow their deforestation rates. The second, to raise awareness of the link between rainforests and climate change.
The Project’s work was largely concluded in Oslo in May 2010 when over fifty Governments launched the R.E.D.D.+ Partnership. The PRP maintains a watching brief as Governments and NGOs take the process forward. However, they continue to work with the public, private and NGO sectors to ensure that agriculture and its relationship with deforestation is maintained as a focus during the implementation of the Partnership Agreement.
The PRP is now part of The Prince’s Charities’ International Sustainability Unit, a programme of work to help build consensus on how to develop durable solutions which will underpin the mechanisms required to meet the challenges of climate change and natural resource depletion.
