REDD+ safeguards in national policy discourse and pilot projects

REDD+ safeguards in national policy discourse and pilot projects
Early adoption of national- and project-level social and environmental standards suggests that REDD+ policy makers, project personnel and investors value REDD+ safeguards.
To gain national-level buy-in for REDD+ safeguards, national sovereignty must be recognised and competing safeguard policies should be harmonised.

The REDD+ safeguards dialogue needs to move away from highlevel international discussions and towards action. This includes introducing guidelines, low-cost strategies and capacity building to support the interpretation, implementation, monitoring and reporting of safeguards.
