Politics and power in national REDD+ policy processesCenter for International Forestry Research (CIFOR)Bogor, Indonesia
Achieving emission reductions through REDD+ requires four preconditions for overcoming politico-economic hurdles: i) the relative autonomy of nation states from key interests that drive deforestation and forest degradation; ii) national ownership over REDD+ policy processes; iii) inclusive REDD+ policy processes; and iv) the presence of coalitions that call for transformational change.
Formulating and implementing effective national REDD+ strategies is most challenging in those countries where international actors are the sole force driving REDD+ policy processes.New coalitions capable of breaking up institutional and political pathdependencies will need the participation of state elites and the engagement of business actors to affect the political agenda in a significant way.
