The Triple Bottom Line: Making the Case to Link REDD+ and Green Economy

A new global report, REDD+ in a Green Economy, is being developed to improve understanding and knowledge about how REDD+ and a green economy transition are mutually beneficial.

REDD+ in a Green Economy, scheduled to be completed by January 2014, will come at an opportune time to help steer REDD+ investments in a way that aligns with green growth strategies to generate high returns. Based on scientific research and lessons learned from pilot projects in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, the report will provide key decision-makers with a rationale for linking REDD+ investments and activities with green economy efforts. In this context, the report will in particular focus on the role of integrated land-use planning for capturing environmental, economic and social benefits from REDD+ investments.  It will serve as a high-level reference document to guide informed, data-driven policy planning and evaluation.

The report will be produced by a working group of international experts that was established by the UNEP International Resource Panel at a meeting in Berlin, Germany, in April. Their work will build on case studies, strategic dialogues, and analyses of challenges and opportunities to be discussed at a Global Symposium on REDD+ in a Green Economy taking place 19-21 June in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The draft proposal of the study on REDD+ in a Green Economy is available here.
