The overall goal is to ensure REDD+ policymakers and practitioners in target countries make decisions informed by science-based knowledge, information, analysis and tools to contribute to effective and efficient reduction of carbon emissions with equitable impacts and poverty reduction, biodiversity and livelihoods co-benefits. As a complement to CIFOR’s Global Comparative Study on REDD+ at national and project levels, the project will focus on REDD+ at the landscape level. We will generate policy lessons from high quality research on multilevel governance and land use decisions and carbon trade-offs at landscape levels. The emphasis on multiple governance levels and on landscapes – where policy meets practice on the ground – addresses existing gaps in science that must be urgently addressed to guide and inform the implementation of REDD+, low carbon strategies and related adaptation options to support to multiple decision-making arenas.
