Case Study Series: REDD Projects Delivering Positive Impacts
Though many have been in operation for over a decade, Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD) projects are some of the most debated and often least-understood project types with which we work. Given the importance of forests, as carbon sinks, as natural resources and as homes for people and wildlife, their stewardship is an invaluable component of mitigating climate change.
We wrote this series of case studies that take a more in-depth look at the work REDD projects do, not only reducing carbon emissions, but also engaging local communities and national government to deliver a range of benefits.
This series is meant for people less familiar with the REDD space, though the studies do dive into more technical details where relevant. The studies can be read independently or as a series.
