In Tanzania, the REDD pilot project ‘Making REDD work for communities and forest conservation in Tanzania has developed a community-oriented REDD model based around direct payment of REDD revenues to communities. REDD revenues are paid as dividends to all community members. This paper describes the process and outlines some of the advantages of the system and the implications of this model in terms of national and international policy.
