Readying Africa for REDD+

View full report

The article looks at the potential for REDD+ activities in Africa and the challenges which currently limit the maximisation of this potential. Drawing on a survey of REDD+ activities the author says that REDD+ readiness and demonstration activities (i.e. measures and mechanisms deemed necessary for the establishment of an enabling framework for the full implementation of REDD+, like land tenure reforms, effective enforcement of land use laws and regulations, and the establishment of systems to reliably monitor, report, and verify forest emissions) predominate in Africa. The article concludes that evidently there is a role for African governments to proactively attract REDD+ activities, for example, through using REDD+ readiness activities to develop plausible strategies and stronger forest governance institutions.
