The Nature Conservancy has released a report—Early Lessons from Jurisdictional REDD+ and Low Emissions Development Programs—which reinforces the idea that with the appropriate investment and stakeholder support, low emissions development programs have the potential to become models of forest-friendly development around the world.
The report assesses current projects taking
place in Brazil, Indonesia, Ghana, the Democratic Republic of the Congo,
Peru, Mexico and Nepal, and provides initial learnings from those
projects that can be applied to others in the future.
findings show that applying low emissions development activities at a
landscape level can provide multiple benefits, but also requires
patience and compelling value propositions to be successful.
