The UN-REDD Programme has published the Policy Brief on ‘The Role of the Private Sector in REDD+: the Case for Engagement and Options for Intervention.’ The Policy Brief aims to encourage public sector REDD+ planners and practitioners to engage with and mobilize the private sector through a range of possible interventions. It identifies relevant private sector actors, and outlines their potential role, in the context of REDD+. The brief makes the case for stronger engagement and considers various interventions that can alter the private sector’s impact on land use. It also outlines the forms of support that the UN-REDD Programme can provide to countries. The brief concludes with a series of case studies examining the potential of engaging with financial intermediaries to slow, halt and reverse forest loss and forest degradation.
