Discussion Forum 4: 10 years of the Global Comparative Study on REDD+

03 Dec 2018

Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation through results-based payments (RBP) is a key distinguishing feature of REDD+. However, REDD+ has evolved into a different set of activities and overall has not yet been as effective and efficient as anticipated when conceived. Nevertheless, the REDD+ debate has visibly advanced countries’ capacities and national and global institutions to address tropical deforestation.

This session will look back on ten years of REDD+ research and ask: Where does REDD+ stand? How has it evolved? How has it transformed tropical forest management and the livelihoods of forest communities?
