CIFOR climate change mitigation programme assessment

August 2014 to July 2015

CIFOR's goal is to ensure that the international post-2012 climate regime and national-level REDD+ schemes are designed in such a way as to ensure that forest-based emissions reductions are efficient, equitable and provide benefits to affected communities in developing countries.


Within four years, CIFOR's research will have informed negotiations towards a global REDD+ regime, and will have contributed to the design and implementation of national-level REDD+ schemes so that they meet these criteria. Within five years, CIFOR aspires to influence national-level REDD+ policies and strategies in at least five countries.

This project is a collaborative assessment of the impact of CIFOR's work on climate change on global, national and sub-national approaches to promote REDD+.
