Benefit sharing is important for creating the necessary incentives to change deforestation and forest degradation behaviors and thus reduce carbon emissions. However, if stakeholders do not see the system as fair, it will threaten the legitimacy of, and support for, REDD+. CIFOR intends on providing the best possible advice to its client based on a participatory approach so that the client has all the needed information, data and engagement of stakeholders to make a policy decision by themselves. As REDD+ benefit sharing mechanism are developed differently across the world since 2009, lesson learnt from existing REDD+ benefit sharing mechanism will help Cote d'Ivoire to avoid mistakes other countries have made and take into account lessons learnt from effective, efficient and equitable benefit sharing mechanism. The first task of this assignment is a global review on lessons learnt on REDD+ benefit sharing mechanism to-date as an important inputs for national stakeholders' discussions. Our work on benefit sharing also builds on findings from the first phase of CIFOR's Global Comparative Study on REDD+ and examines the opportunity, transaction and implementation costs of REDD+ at national and subnational levels, as well as multilevel governance and rights. Sufficient field work and consultations with stakeholders at all levels is carried out so that we can understand the perceptions, needs and circumstances, develop a draft report that would outline our understanding of the situation and the various possibilities to respond to them, validate this report in a validation workshop that involves national-and regional-level stakeholders, undertake internal quality control and present the final report to the client.
