Options for a national REDD+ architecture

Options for a national REDD+ architecture

Key criteria for assessing different institutional options are their overall legitimacy and ability to produce 3E+ outcomes.

Four major options for channelling (international) REDD+ finance are projects, funds – independent or within the state administration – and budget support. The mix of these depends crucially on national conditions and the choice of REDD+ actions.

Building national REDD+ institutions takes time, and early design might constrain later options. Countries must therefore ensure that the immediate steps taken fit future and more developed solutions.
