A decade of REDD+: stakeholder perceptions of its implementation

A decade of REDD+: stakeholder perceptions of its implementation

Back-to-back with the GFEP report “Forest, Climate, Biodiversity, and People: Assessing a Decade of REDD+” launched by the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) in 2012, stakeholder consultations were carried out in Asia and Latin America. These consultations helped to identify a number of factors that, from the point of view of the stakeholders, need to be improved in future REDD+ activities.

The present publication synthesizes the responses and comments from the nearly 200 stakeholders interviewed that provided their opinion on REDD+ implementation on the ground. Their opinions refer to:

  • Major social factors to be addressed
  • Major economic factors to be addressed
  • Major environmental factors to be addressed
  • Major governance factors to be addressed
  • How could GFEP’s report on REDD+ contribute to policymaking
  • How would stakeholders use GFEP’s report on REDD+

Despite the intrinsic differences between both regions, the factors that need to be improved (according to the stakeholders interviewed), are similar.
