Three New Go-REDD+ Issues from UN-REDD in Asia-Pacific

The latest issues from the UN-REDD Programme "Go-REDD+" Asia-Pacific listserv explore some alternative thinking on REDD+ implementation; discuss how best to ensure rural communities benefit from REDD+; and highlight best practices for reforestation and forest restoration.

The Go-REDD+ issue entitled, Why a Project-based Approach to REDD+ Implementation is Inappropriate, looks into fundamental changes in thinking and approach to REDD+ implementation between project-based and national approach, and which one of them can be more beneficial to address underlying causes of GHG emissions from forests for systemic solutions and what are challenges to achieve the national REDD+ approach.

The Go-REDD+ issue entitled, Ensuring Rural Communities’ Benefits in REDD+, explores how to safeguard the rural poor’s and indigenous people’s benefits in REDD+ and what measures need to be taken to ensure that they have access to the potential benefits of REDD+.

The Go-REDD+ issue entitled, Reforestation and Forest Restoration under REDD+: Avoiding the Mistakes of the Past, discusses what lessons we have learned from the past experience in reforestation and forest restoration and what are recommendations to avoid historical pitfalls, which are applicable to REDD+.
