Executive Summary
Book chapter, 2014

As one of the leading near-term options for global climate change mitigation,REDD+ has been piloted in over 300 subnational initiatives across the tropics.This book describes 23 of those initiatives in six countries: Brazil, Peru, Cameroon,Tanzania, Indonesia and Vietnam. These initiatives were selected in large part because they had defined their specific intervention areas but not yet offered conditional incentives to reduce forest carbon emissions when CIFOR collected baseline data in 2010. By 2014, they had implemented a broad range of actions both to develop enabling conditions and to reduce forest emissions. Thus, it is now timely to report on their experiences and assess early lessons about REDD+, including finance, tenure, scale, MRV and safeguards.
