This report assesses several important considerations for a future REDD mechanism within the UNFCCC, and strives to clarify and inform some of the critical choices that will need to be made about including REDD in a Copenhagen agreement. At the international level, a good outcome for REDD would create the enabling conditions for effective implementation in REDD countries, including:
– Financial incentives, (Chapter 2); – Procedures for setting reference levels (Chapter 3); – Methodologies for monitoring, reporting, and verification (MRV Chapter 4); and – Processes to promote the participation of indigenous peoples and local communities (Chapter 5).
