Corruption risks and experiences in REDD+ financial benefit sharing mechanisms

Bergen: Chr. Michelsen Institute (U4 Brief 2014:11) 4 p.

The success of REDD+ hinges on providing forest users with positive monetary and nonmonetary incentives or benefits that both motivate behavioral change regarding forest use and help offset the various costs associated with implementing REDD+. Financial benefit sharing is designed to distribute REDD+ revenues to forest users in order to provide them with more lucrative income-earning opportunities than those gained by felling trees.
