Name:Making REDD+ cross-sectoral: why, how, and what are the potential socio-economic impacts?
Description:

REDD+ requires countries to effectively address the drivers of deforestation and forest degradation (DD), many of which are outside the forest sector, therefore national level REDD+ strategies and their implementation will need to be cross-sectoral in their approaches.

The agriculture sector is the most important sector driving DD, and the energy sector is closely linked to forests in most developing countries through the widespread dependence on traditional biomass fuel for energy in Africa and Asia, and the increasing competition for land between biofuel feedstock production and forests, mainly in Asia and Latin America. The success of REDD+ will therefore be heavily dependent on harmonisation of REDD+, agricultural and energy objectives.
