Can REDD+ achieve its goals?: Insights from research on forests and climate in the tropics
Underway for a decade, REDD+ (which stands for “Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation”) has been viewed as a promising, frontline approach not just for climate change mitigation (through forest protection, afforestation, and reforestation), but also for protecting and improving livelihoods, equity, tenure rights, and biodiversity in tropical developing countries. When it began, the intended core mechanism of REDD+ was a system of rewards for people who protect and enhance forests in a verifiable way. The results of six years of field research in six countries (Brazil, Peru, Cameroon, Tanzania, Indonesia, Vietnam) give insights on how REDD+ has evolved and its potential to achieve its global goals.
