The primary conclusion of this report is that many synergies between REDD+ and the ongoing transition to a Green Economy are currently under-utilized. Realizing these synergies will accelerate the transition while maximizing the return on REDD+ investments. REDD+ can be an important support element for achieving a Green Economy. On the other hand, REDD+ is likely to be successful only if it is supported by an
enabling environment that includes Green Economy elements such as good governance, law enforcement, land tenure reform, sustainable supporting financial mechanisms, equitable distribution of benefits, and valuations and recognition of natural capital. This report provides a concise summary of the elements necessary for integrating REDD+ into a Green Economy.
