Operationalizing REDD+: Actors, Interests and Ideas

Operationalising REDD3.jpg

Although REDD+ has become the central focus of deforestation policy and practice globally, there is no globally accepted implementation strategy. Instead, REDD+ is being shaped in a range of different arenas, from local level projects to international negotiations. The aim of this project is to gain a better understanding of the wide range of actors, interests and ideas that are shaping REDD+.

Specifically, we seek to examine:

NGO Positions and Strategies on REDD+: Past and Present

Trust and Equity in REDD+: The design and verification of social safeguards

The Role of Protected Areas in REDD+

Negotiating the “+” in REDD+
