REDD Policy Brief: Key Design Issues for the National REDD Strategy

The Tanzania Forest Working Group just released a policy brief, "Options for REDD in Tanzania: Key Design Issues for the National REDD Strategy." REDD presents both risks and opportunities for forest conservation and poverty reduction in Tanzania. It has the opportunity to increase national, district, and local benefits from forests, and to diversify local incomes from natural resource management.

However, REDD also presents the risk of increased appropriation of community lands and conflicts over resource benefits in ways that could negatively impact local livelihoods and sustainable forest management. This policy brief discusses some of the key design questions and options in relation to REDD in Tanzania, with a particular focus on the various benefit sharing options.
