Lessons for REDD+ from protected areas and integrated conservation and development projects

Lessons for REDD+ from protected areas and integrated conservation and development projects
Forest protected areas (PAs) could become a critically important element of tropical forest countries’ efforts to implement and benefit from REDD+.
There are important similarities and overlaps between REDD+ projects and integrated conservation and development projects (ICDPs) linked to PAs. Like ICDPs, REDD+ pilot and demonstration projects have generated considerable excitement and donor support, and very high expectations among stakeholders.

ICDPs have generally performed poorly; although the reasons for this are well understood, avoidable mistakes continue to be made in their design and implementation. REDD+ projects should learn from these experiences.
