What is REDD+

Agriculture and forests in the land use sector, are recognized in International negotiations on climate change for post-2020. These areas play a fundamental role in defining mitigation objectives. REDD+ is the tool created by those negotiations for achieving forestry objectives in developing countries. It is an incentive mechanism based on measurable and verified results (result-based actions). Moreover, REDD+ projects are aimed illegal logging, and the excessive exploitation of wood (e.g. timber, paper products, or fuel). In addition, REDD+ sponsors reforestation projects and helps fund the fight against desertification by promoting better farming methods. REDD+ programs not only limit decreases in forest stocks, but also increase the quantity of trees. The official acronym became REDD + when organization behind this concept was formally established at COP 14 in Poznan.
