Forests play a pivotal role in regulating our global climate and represent a cornerstone of our strategy to tackle climate change. REDD+ was conceived as a mechanism to compensate low- and middle-income countries for the conservation of their forests.
This new GFEP assessment on REDD+ evaluates the actual on-the-ground impacts of REDD+ activities on forests, climate, biodiversity and people. It revisits the issues and questions examined in the earlier 2012 GFEP assessment on REDD+, analyzing and synthesizing scientific information published in the last decade, along with lessons learnt since then.
