Abstract: At the 15th Conference of Parties (COP-15) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) held in Copenhagen in December 2009, the need to provide incentives for the reduction of emission from deforestation and forest degradation was for the first time mentioned in the final declaration of the Heads of State and governments, referred as Decision 2 of the COP-15 (2/CP.15). This decision follows on Decision 2 of the COP-13 (2/CP.13) on ¿approaches to stimulate action¿ for ¿reducing emissions from deforestation in developing countries¿. The ¿Copenhagen Accord¿ recognizes ¿the crucial role of reducing emission from deforestation and forest degradation and the need to enhance removals of greenhouse gas emission by forests¿ and encourages the ¿immediate establishment of a mechanism including REDD-plus (...) to enable the mobilization of financial resources from developed countries¿.
