Governance

Good and efficient governance of forest resources and the distribution of benefits will be central to the success of REDD+. The UN-REDD Programme has already begun its support to pilot countries starting to establish governance systems for REDD+, through national UN-REDD Programmes. Under these capacity building efforts for REDD+ readiness, the Programme is supporting governance interventions that governments and national stakeholders have identified as priorities, such as:

  • Stakeholder consultation and participation in REDD+ planning and implementation.
  • Cross-sectoral coordination in REDD+ planning and implementation.
  • Legislative review towards reform and enforcement.

These activities are initial steps to build transparent and accountable national REDD+ systems and processes.
