Land tenure and REDD+: the good, the bad and the ugly

Under what conditions does REDD+ present a threat or opportunity for local land/forest tenure rights? Based on the evidence collected to date from field studies as part of CIFOR's Global Comparative Study on REDD+, the issue of local tenure rights is being taken seriously by key actors. But the hard work may have only just begun. CIFOR scientist Anne Larson gave this presentation on 18 June 2012 at a panel discussion organised by CIFOR and partners at the ISEE 2012 Conference at Rio, which convened under the topic "Ecological Economics and Rio+20: Challenges and Contributions for a Green Economy". The panel was titled 'National strategies for reducing emissions from avoided deforestation and degradation - how much transformational change is possible in current political and economic realities? Part I - An overview'. For more information, visit
