In the first half of 2013 Scope14+ was contracted under the UN-REDD program to assist ICIMOD and WWF Pakistan with the REDD+ Readiness Roadmap process, which resulted in the first R-PP draft for Pakistan. This document was submitted to the FCPF and accepted in the FCPF meeting in July 2013. This is only the beginning of a consultative, participative process of refinement of the REDD+ Readiness work in Pakistan, which will take some time. A consultative workshop was held in February 2013, which was the official launch of the process. See also http://www.icimod.org/?q=9730
