REDD+ could provide important social and development benefits to forest countries and forest-dependent communities but the risks of non-delivery are high. This matters because more than one billion people, often from very poor communities, depend on forests for their livelihoods. If REDD+ schemes do not include well-designed systems to share benefits with such communities, new problems could arise in the future. For REDD+ programmes and projects to succeed, they must understand – and address – people’s concerns about how REDD+ will affect their livelihoods.

This handout provides a brief overview and results of the project: Poverty and sustainable development impacts of REDD architecture. See below for link to more information on the project.
