Safeguards for REDD+ from a Donor Perspective

Safeguards for REDD+ from a Donor Perspective

This paper was developed to provide a conceptual framing on the application of safeguards for transactions providing financial support for REDD+ actions. It seeks to provide an overview on the different safeguard approaches that bilateral donors currently apply, their applicability to various financing modalities, their legal status and scope, their relevance in the funding cycle, as well as other areas potentially worthy of further study.
