Using national REDD+ strategy development in Tanzania as a case study, this presentation asks how national policymakers make sense of the complex information available about REDD+, who are the central knowledge and information actors and brokers, and what influence these dynamics and discourses have on the creation of REDD+ policy. There are implications in this research for breaking the stalemate on polarising issues and improving the chances of an effective policy being produced.
Salla Rantala from the Harvard Kennedy School’s Sustainability Science Program gave this presentation on 18 June 2012 at a panel discussion organised by CIFOR and partners at the ISEE 2012 Conference at Rio, which convened under the topic "Ecological Economics and Rio+20: Challenges and Contributions for a Green Economy". The panel was titled ‘National strategies for reducing emissions from avoided deforestation and degradation – how much transformational change is possible in current political and economic realities? Part I – An overview’. For more information, visit http://www.cifor.org/events/rio20/
