REDD and Beyond: International and Indigenous Strategies in Forest Protection

Event Type
Side Event UNFCCC COP 20

Lima, 04.12.2014


German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE)

REDD+, PES and private forest finance gained importance in Latin America over the last years. But how effective are these various instruments with regard to forest protection? How socially inclusive are they with respect to indigenous communities and other vulnerable forest users? And how fair are the proposed benefit-sharing mechanisms?

Experts and stakeholders addressed these questions for a series of incentive-based and financial instruments. Apart from REDD, these included conditional cash transfers for protection of indigenous territories (SocioBosque in Ecuador, Programa Bosques in Peru), forest investment schemes, and social environmental safeguards for forest protection.
