Forest Governance and Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD)

J Saunders, R Nussbaum | 2007 | Chatham House Energy, Environment and Development Programme

Presented at the UNFCCC in Bali, December 2007. This paper sets out a number of lessons from ongoing efforts to improve forest governance, which should be considered at both the design and implementation stage of a potential REDD mechanism, and suggests that those countries that improve their forest governance, clarify tenurial arrangements and address illegality are more likely to achieve reduced deforestation and benefit from potential REDD investment than those that do not.
