Who Pays and Who Benefits?

Equity implications of REDD+ policies and benefit-sharing mechanisms
Monday 8 June, 18:30 – 20:00
Room : Berlin
Refreshments provided


Join this side event to gain insights into a range of options for REDD+ benefit-sharing mechanisms and equity, drawing on three years of comparative research across Asia, Africa and Latin America.

Designing a benefit-sharing mechanism that is efficient, effective and equitable is the holy grail of REDD+, but navigating the trade-offs between these three “Es” remains a challenge.

Learn about the risks, rewards and results of various initiatives, explore what has worked in other sectors, and discuss new avenues for incorporating fairness into policy design.
