The Dialogue in DC is a first scoping exercise for the REDD+ Benefit Sharing Initiative, which aimed to develop and understand the current state of REDD+ Benefit Sharing in several key countries and to identify the challenges of designing and implementing those mechanisms more broadly. The REDD+ Initiative seeks to build a “community of practice” among locally-rooted, well-connected REDD practitioners to share experiences and develop practical tools that support effective, efficient and equitable benefit sharing for REDD+. Through the initiative, we expect to promote appropriate economic, policy and institutional arrangements at the local, national and international levels and to facilitate equitable and efficient delivery of REDD+ benefits. This Dialogue is hosted by The World Bank.
