Interactive tool explores policy options for sharing REDD+ benefits

For the last 4 years, the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) has been learning about what works, what doesn’t work and what is crucial to consider when designing policies for sharing benefits from REDD+.

A newly launched knowledge tree synthesises that research:

This tool is designed to help users navigate the complexity of sharing benefits from the mechanism reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation.

We have made it easy for users to explore different practical policy options and guidance, which we hope will improve the design, development and implementation of REDD+ benefit sharing mechanisms in national and local government decision making.

The REDD+ Benefit Sharing Knowledge Tree was developed as part of the CIFOR project “Opportunities and challenges to developing REDD+ benefit sharing mechanisms in developing countries” funded by the European Union. This project builds on CIFOR’s Global Comparative Study on REDD+.
