External briefing on Safeguarding REDD+

This briefing, carries out by consultant group LTS International, examines existing systems for ensuring that finance for the UN's Reducing Emissions through Deforestation and Degradation scheme, under which rich countries pay developing ones to preserve rather than harvest their forests, is used effectively and transparently, and outlines what still needs to be done to ensure this.
