This project aims to assist regional leaders in REDD+ readiness, with good prospects of near-term financing, meet multiple safeguard requirements and be eligible for results-based payments. This will be achieved at the national level through facilitating country-led safeguard approaches and designing of safeguard information systems (SIS), and at the subnational level through mainstreaming of safeguards into low-emissions development planning and piloting participatory forest monitoring approaches. In addition, the project has a global component, aimed at developing state of the art knowledge products and facilitating south to south knowledge and learning exchanges.
