The symposium starts with key note speeches by a prominent researcher, practitione    r and negotiator, who will later enter into a lively discussion touching on some of the contentious debates related to REDD+. During four parallel sessions in the afternoon, special issue authors present their work on REDD+ from both a natural and social science perspective. These sessions will address the governance of REDD+; Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) systems for REDD+; REDD+ in a larger context; and the implementation of REDD+ projects. In the plenary session that follows, the authors and the public will discuss some key propositions that came up during the parallel sessions. The symposium ends with a drink and a dinner. 

The symposium is an initiative of the REDD@WUR network and will be held in Wageningen on the 10th of April 2012.
