Rules, games and carbon: Exploring rights and REDD+ benefits

Scientists from the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and partners conduct behavioral experiments with communities in Yogyakarta, Indonesia to understand how rights to forests and resources shape people’s behavior and encourage them to manage their forests sustainably.

In the game, villagers decide how they are going to use the forests they share. It forms part of CIFOR’s research looking at how land tenure and a fair division of the benefits of forest use – or benefit sharing – can impact the reduction of carbon emissions.
