Publication Details - REDD+ & Post-Conflict

REDD+ & Post-Conflict

A briefing for the Oslo REDD-Exchange


Arthur Blundell, Emily Harwell, Kerstin Canby - Natural Capital Advisors, Forest Trends






Since the first commitments for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD+) were announced in Bali in 2007, more than half of all participating countries have experienced violent conflict involving organized, armed groups. If properly designed, REDD+ programs can strengthen peace and security as much as they can mitigate climate change, improve environmental management, and support local communities. But to be effective, REDD+ must address challenges unique to countries attempting to recover from conflict.
