Analyzing possible impacts of REDD+ initiatives on the ground. Lessons from São Félix do Xingu, Brazil



This presentation gives an overview of research around the pilot REDD+ program in São Félix do Xingu, Brazil. It describes conventional land and forest use strategies of small and large landholders in the project area, and addresses how these behaviours could be affected by the introduction of a proposed municipality-wide REDD+ pilot project. 

Maria Fernanda Gebara gave this presentation on 18 June 2012 at a panel discussion organised by CIFOR and partners at the ISEE 2012 Conference at Rio, which convened under the topic "Ecological Economics and Rio+20: Challenges and Contributions for a Green Economy". The panel was titled ‘A comparison of intervention strategies and impacts of four incipient REDD+ initiatives in the Brazilian Amazon’.
