New report on the drivers of deforestation

The long-term viability of REDD+ depends on altering business-as-usual activity in sectors currently driving greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from forests. A new synthesis report investigates activities (drivers) that lead to deforestation and forest degradation.

 

It explores the relevance of drivers in REDD+ policy development and implementation, key interventions to address driver activity, the role of drivers for national forest monitoring and for developing REDD+ forest reference (emission) levels.

It concludes with recommendations intended to support the on-going international climate negotiations, as well as country-level plans and interventions to affect drivers of deforestation and forest degradation.

This publication has been produced with the financial assistance of the United Kingdom Departments for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and International Development (DFID) and The Government of Norway's International Climate and Forest Initiative.
