Mozambique’s REDD+: the challenge is scaling success

The Testing REDD+ in the Beira Landscape Corridor of Mozambique initiative closed in December. Over nearly four years, a consortium of public academic and research institutions, NGOs and social enterprises, supported by the Government of Norway, has explored what drives deforestation and forest degradation. The programme trialled four interventions: to expand conservation agriculture, to make logging more sustainable, to harvest and use biomass energy more efficiently, and to promote sustainable production of an important non-timber product. We now know what works. The challenge is in scaling it up. This briefing sets out our learning and recommendations.

This research was funded by the Norwegian government through its embassy in Maputo.
