Conditions in place for reduced deforestation, increased restoration, reduced poverty and rights-based development in REDD+ target countries due to increased effort to clarify and secure forest tenure rights of communities, households, and Indigenous Peoples.


Scaled-up effort to legally secure forest tenure rights of local communities, households and Indigenous Peoples lead to reduced emissions from deforestation and enhanced restoration of degraded lands and livelihoods in key REDD+ countries.
