Local hopes and worries about REDD+ projectsCenter for International Forestry Research (CIFOR)Bogor, Indonesia
Local forest users in sampled REDD+ project areas understood REDD+ to be fundamentally about forest protection; simultaneously, they hoped that local REDD+ projects would improve their incomes and worried that they could negatively affect their livelihoods.
Villagers depend extensively on proponents for information about REDD+ and the local REDD+ project, and there may be a need for independent knowledge brokers or legal advisers.The key challenges for REDD+ projects are: i) to communicate to villagers how REDD+ projects work, the opportunities and risks, and the rights and responsibilities; ii) to involve villagers meaningfully in the design and implementation of the project; and iii) to balance forest protection with the welfare concerns of villagers.
