In 2005 the REDD+ Strategy (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation/ sustainable forest management and enhancement of forest carbon stocks) was created within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. This Strategy is one of the most important international mechanisms for climate change mitigation.
REDD+ aims to develop a set of policies and programs to address the causes of deforestation / forest degradation, promote social and economic development, promote the conservation and the sustainable management of natural resources and to increase carbon stocks.
- Reducing emissions from deforestation.
- Reducing emissions from forest degradation.
- Conservation of forest carbon stocks.
- Sustainable management of forests.
- Enhancement of forest carbon stocks.
The FCPF is a global partnership that supports countries with tropical and subtropical forests to develop systems and policies for REDD+ with result-based payments.
