Results from the period 2009-2012
From 2009 to 2012 Norad has supported 46 projects which have contributed in various ways to the work on REDD+.
Some results are on a local level: small holder farmers have achieved better yields through more sustainable land use and preserving the forest at the same time, and local communities have gained knowledge about REDD+ and secured their land rights.
Other results show how civil society has been important actor in raising awareness against corruption and uncovering illegal logging which have had effects on trade and on the prevention of international crime.
It will still take several years to achieve the main outcomes in the funding scheme, nevertheless the results achieved so far show that civil society is an important actor of change in the work towards REDD+.
