REDD+, Technical, Socioeconomic and Political Dimensions
Date:3/31/2011

Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation 'Plus' (REDD+) is a climate change mitigation strategy that aims to financially compensate landowners and stewards for "avoiding" forest loss and degradation, as well as promoting forest conservation, sustainable forest management and the enhancement of forest carbon stocks. If designed and implemented correctly, REDD+ has the potential to generate a valuable stream of funding for initiatives that will conserve and restore important tracts of tropical forests. These efforts would not only contribute toward abating the effects of global warming, but also to protect biodiversity and ecosystem services, and support poverty alleviation and rural development. Alternatively, if the mechanism fails to adequately address potential pitfalls, REDD+ could compromise local livelihoods, affect traditional uses of forests, and enhance or catalyze corruption, among other problems.

Currently, voluntary REDD pilot projects are in effect throughout the tropics and many countries are preparing themselves for the eventual development of a formal mechanism, a process known as REDD-Readiness. If approved within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), REDD+ activities will go into effect after 2012 under a formal regulated system.

Panama has been actively engaged in international negotiations and debates regarding REDD+. The country was selected in 2008 and 2009 as a recipient of funding and support for REDD+ Readiness under the United Nations Collaborative Programme on REDD in Developing Countries (UN-REDD) and the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) of the World Bank (WB), respectively.

Government officials, indigenous communities, NGOs, and organizations of farmers, cattle ranchers, loggers and other agents of land transformation (i.e. "colonos") have begun to take part in REDD+ discussions and/or training. ELTI, in collaboration with McGill University and other local part
