India: Implementing  COP Decisions on  REDD+ Agreed REDD+ activities contributing to  mitigation (para 70 of AWG‐LCA)  Reducing emissions from deforestation Reducing emissions from forest degradation Conservation of forest carbon stocks Sustainable management of forests Enhancement of forest carbon stocks
  • 4. India: Implementing  COP Decisions on  REDD+ National REDD+ framework National strategy of actions National forest reference level National transparent forest monitoring and  reporting system Information system to report on adherence  to safeguards
