- Stakeholder participation in natural resource management, and REDD+ in particular, are mandatory in the existing DRC legal frameworks.
- The key limitations to stakeholder participation in REDD+ are weak law enforcement, poor coordination, lack of financial resources, limited recognition of land and forest tenure, limited capacity, and insufficient monitoring and guidance at lower levels to ensure participation.
- The key factors relevant to increasing stakeholder participation in the DRC are effective policies and measures to address these challenges. REDD+ policy makers and project developers must possess a good understanding of stakeholder channels for participation in REDD+ and the factors driving their engagement. This will enable the provision of appropriate support mechanisms and capacity for different stakeholder groups, based on their needs and capacity.
