Export citation

Key messages

  • The experiences of subnational REDD+ initiatives in the Peruvian Amazon provide valuable lessons for the design and implementation of national greenhouse gas mitigation efforts.
  • We identify lessons that could contribute to enhancing the effectiveness and equity of some of the greenhouse gas mitigation measures adopted by Peru under its Nationally Determined Contributions.
  • We highlight the importance of spatial targeting, customised rewards and conditionality of rewards to contribute to achieving more effective results in REDD+ initiatives.
  • Mechanisms to ensure transparency, participation and accountability are also key to implementing equitable and sustainable carbon mitigation initiatives.
