The example set by Norway and Indonesia in tackling climate change through REDD+ could help encourage significant progress at the Cancun, Mexico, climate talks this year, the Jakarta Post quoted the visiting Norwegian foreign minister as saying on Monday.

Norwegian FM Jonas Gahr Stoere said here Sunday that while global climate meetings, such as the Copenhagen conference, had failed to produce legally binding agreements to stop global warming, reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degredation (REDD+) was among the very few examples of tangible progress.

He said what Norway and Indonesia could do while waiting for the climate conference in Cancun and South Africa was to demonstrate that they had made tangible progress in their REDD+ deal.

He expressed optimism that REDD+ would be included in the broader framework of climate change agreements during the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Cancun from Nov. 27 to Dec. 10.

REDD+ has been called an alternative scheme to slash greenhouse gas emissions in dealing with human-enduced climate change.
