A Retrospective on 10+ Years of REDD+ Engagement by NGOs

Posted on 20 May 2021

WWF sought to assess the role NGOs have played in REDD+ policy development and REDD+ implementation to date and determine how lessons learned can inform their role moving forward.
While non-governmental organizations (NGOs) vary in their support of or opposition to REDD+, a great many have been instrumental in the development and advancement of a global forest and climate agenda that prominently features REDD+. As these NGOs transition to supporting countries in the implementation of their climate commitments under the Paris Agreement, WWF sought to assess the role they have played in REDD+ policy development and REDD+ implementation to date and determine how lessons learned can inform their role moving forward. This assessment was performed in two ways: 1) by conducting a series of interviews of current and former representatives to the UNFCCC from developed and developing countries to collect government perspectives on the role of NGOs in REDD+; and 2) by hosting a workshop for NGO representatives to exchange and generate insights from their experience working on REDD+. This report aims to synthesize the findings from this assessment.
