Lessons on Land Tenure, Forest Governance and REDD+. Case Studies from Africa, Asia and Latin America



This collection of case studies offers examples of innovative attempts to address land tenure within REDD+ programs. These case studies were presented in a workshop on Land Tenure and Forest Carbon Management held in Madison, Wisconsin, October 21-22, 2011, funded by the USAID TransLinks Program. The collection represents ground-breaking experiences from a range of countries prioritized for REDD+. The case study authors also put forth policy guidelines for improving the equity and efficacy of REDD+ and similar initiatives. In order to ensure a shared vocabulary in our discussion of land tenure, rights and security, we first outline definitions of terms and key ideas before synthesizing the case studies and their lessons.
