REDD

REDD

Under the auspices of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Parties are developing a programme on reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries (REDD). The way that REDD is developed and implemented will have huge ramifications for the future of forest conservation and forest-dwelling communities. Natural Justice is building on its work under the auspices of the Convention on Biological Diversity on access and benefit sharing and protected areas to promote biodiversity and social safeguards within REDD. We are also working with partners to explore the application of biocultural community protocols as a participatory methodology for ensuring the integrity of procedures relating to, among other things, free, prior and informed consent.

For more information about REDD negotiations under the UNFCCC, read IISD reports and analysis and REDD-monitor. For more about biocultural community protocols and REDD, please download the following publications:

  • Chapter 4 in our book “Biocultural Community Protocols: A Community Approach to Ensuring the Integrity of Environmental Law and Policy”.
  • “Community Protocols in REDD”, a booklet that was released at the UNFCCC COP17 in Durban.
