This presentation, given on 27 September 2012 in connection with CIFOR’s new REDD+ Benefit Sharing project, discusses the idea of benefit sharing and how it relates to REDD+ and various stakeholders in the REDD+ process. Some examples of benefit sharing policies and proposals in various countries are given. The presentation also gives an overview of the complexities involved in the question: who should benefit from REDD+? For more information, see Chapter 8 of Analysing REDD+: “Who should benefit and why? Discourses on REDD+ benefit sharing” (go to http://www.cifor.org/online-library/browse/view-publication/publication/3822.html).
