Reinforcing REDD+ with reduced emissions agricultural policy

Reinforcing REDD+ with reduced emissions agricultural policy
A reduced emissions agricultural policy (REAP) can be an effective, efficient and, potentially, equitable REDD+ policy option.
A REAP should prioritise agricultural assistance to growers in productive agricultural areas close to major centres of population.

A REAP in forest-rich countries might feature low tariffs on agricultural products, while a REAP in forest-poor countries might emphasise biofuel production.
