REDD+ is one of the frontline approaches to climate change mitigation in the forest sector. It aims to restrict carbon emissions from deforestation and forest degradation while improving the livelihoods and well-being of local forest dwellers, increasing their tenure security, protecting local biodiversity, and assuring cost efficiency of projects and equity among REDD+ stakeholders. Research conducted by the Center for International Forestry Research since 2009 has been measuring to what extent these goals have been met, and makes recommendations for improvement.

Our annual Sociology-in-Progress (SIP) Colloquia are free and do not require registration.
