Integrating REDD+ into a Green Economy Transition - Opportunities and Challenges

— sector: Forestry and natural resource management
— theme: Environment and climate
— country: Global
— type: Reports

This paper outlines a rationale for integrating REDD+ within the green economy transition and initiates thinking on how this might be achieved. It brings together the existing literature to consolidate conceptual issues, presents key examples of progress, and highlights the potential challenges and opportunities of including REDD+ in the transition to a green economy. Intended to support the discussions of the Global Symposium on REDD+ in a Green Economy, held in Indonesia in June 2013, the target audience of this paper is the communities of practice both in REDD+ and green economy; this includes policy-makers, civil society organisations and academia.
