TFD Review: Country Options for REDD+ Benefit Sharing

In partnership with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), The Forests Dialogue (TFD) organized a series of international dialogues under its initiative on REDD+ Benefit Sharing. Funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) this handbook is the result of dialogues in four different countries: Peru, Ghana, Mexico and Viet Nam which 250 key forest stakeholders from 25 different countries attended.

This TFD review, Country Options for REDD+ Benefit Sharing, offers unique and in-depth insights linking international aspirations to mitigate climate change with practical options on the ground that can reduce deforestation and degradation. 
This review covers the following questions:
  1. How should the multiple benefits of REDD+ be defined and used to incentivize stakeholders to engage in REDD+?
  2. How can the costs of REDD+ be identified and reduced?
  3. How can the concepts and perspectives of REDD+ benefit sharing best be communicated among stakeholder groups?
  4. How can benefit-sharing be optimized according to the principles of efficiency, effectiveness and equity?
  5. How should beneficiaries be identified when rights are unclear? On what basis can benefits be shared?
  6. How can the active engagement of the private sector be obtained in generating and sharing benefits?
  7. How can national programs be designed to accommodate different local contexts?
