Analysing REDD+: Challenges and choices is the third book in a series of highly recognised REDD+ volumes from CIFOR. It was launched at CIFOR's official onsite side event during Rio+20, which discussed how transformational change is required to realise the forest sector's climate change mitigation potential through avoided deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+). Climate change is a key global challenge and forests are a key part of the international mitigation agenda. REDD+ offers the opportunity to transform the forest sector in a manner consistent with the vision of a green economy.
For the past four years, CIFOR and partners have been conducting a Global Comparative Study on REDD+ on policy development and the challenges of implementation. In this presentation, CIFOR scientists discuss the results of this work that are relevant to the objectives of Rio+20 and the development of a green economy.
