Linking Smallholders to PES/REDD+ Intermediaries and ecosystem service markets

This issue paper focuses specifically on intermediation strategies to deliver regulating and cultural services, primarily through payments for ecosystem services (PES) and REDD+. It highlights the importance of good governance and the need to establish clear land, forest and carbon rights to protect resource users’ rights and ensure the fair distribution of benefits and risks without further marginalising the poorest land users – and cautions that a one-size-fits-all, market-based approach may not be suitable for all.

Making REDD+ work for communities and forests: three shared lessons for project designers

This report shows how the Mpingo Conservation and Development Initiative (MCDI) in southeastern Tanzania successfully involved communities in participatory forest management, Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) certification and REDD+. The authors offer their experience and share three lessons: why you should start with quick and dirty calculations on what drives deforestation; why you need to design ‘backwards’ from REDD+ market requirements; and how you can deal with some of the challenges of introducing to communities the commercial element (carbon contracts) necessary for REDD+.

The challenge of establishing REDD+ on the ground: Insights from 23 subnational initiatives in six countries

This study indicates that an incentive program to reduce carbon emissions from deforestation and forest degradation — known as REDD+ — risks losing momentum over issues of land tenure and economic viability. The challenges, however, are surmountable, researchers say, adding that a binding international climate agreement could go a long way in bolstering the REDD+ program’s prospects for mitigating climate change.
