The first is to examine existing arrangements for sharing benefits and extract insights from existing community-based natural resource management (CBNRM) arrangements that involve sharing benefits, specifically insights regarding how benefits are determined, how beneficiaries are identified, and how the set-up is influencing the...
A key activity in Phase 1 of REDD+—the UN’s Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) forestry mitigation mechanism—is the development of policies and measures (PAMs) to define where and how emissions reductions and carbon stock enhancements and conservation will be achieved. This paper provides contextual data and information for the...

This report forms a part of that work and describes lessons learned in five key areas: a) Legal aspects of PES, conservation incentives and REDD+ programs through the lens of participation agreements; b) Poverty reduction, livelihoods, and other equity issues; c) Evaluating and managing trade-offs and synergies between programs, sectors and...
This guide, based on a full technical paper prepared by SNV, presents six broad categories of options for operationalising the Cancun safeguards, translating these broad generic statements into national policy and practice. These options for national-level safeguard responses are presented in the context of delivering environmental co-benefits; however, they are equally applicable to...
The Brazilian state of Acre in the Amazon -- home to the Sky Rainforest Rescue project -- is considered a global leader in defining a REDD+ policy framework. Acre's 2010 law that created the Environmental Service Incentives System (SISA in Portuguese), sets out a framework for valuing a range of...
