Low emission development strategies (LEDS) – how can REDD+ contribute?

Low emission development strategies (LEDS) – how can REDD+ contribute?

Green growth ideas, including low emission development strategies (LEDS), have become dominant in global narratives and have been translated into national discourses to varying degrees, for example in Vietnam or Indonesia; however, transitions to low-emission economies are far from reality, write the authors.

This Infobrief identifies low emission development strategies, the challenges faced by LEDS and REDD+, how REDD+ can contribute to LEDS, and the conditions that favour successful LEDS and REDD+.

The suggest integration of REDD+ with LEDS can be highly synergetic, as both share the same objective: reconciling development with environmental outcomes.
