The performance of REDD+: From global governance to local practices

Export citation

Whilst ‘REDD’ is the acronym for reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, ‘REDD+’ refers to efforts to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, foster conservation, promote the sustainable management of forests, and enhance forest carbon stocks. The basic idea behind REDD+ is that more carbon is sequestrated and stocked in tropical forests by improving their conservation, management, and sustainable use, thus contributing to mitigating climate change. Developing countries and relevant stakeholders will be financially compensated for these endeavors, either through public funds or carbon markets.
