Forest Climate Activities and Projects
WWF is initiating forest climate demonstration activities in high biodiversity landscapes in the world’s key forest landscapes, including the Amazon, Borneo and Congo Basin, by working at scale with local communities and governments to test approaches for getting REDD+ right.
Indigenous Peoples, Local Communities & REDD+
WWF believes that REDD+ is a key to effective climate change mitigation but needs to integrate strong social and environmental safeguards. WWF’s Guiding Principles for REDD+ emphasize respect for the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities and contributions to community livelihoods. Effective REDD+ programmes must ensure that risks are reduced and incentives for community stewardship are strengthened.
