REDD? and the role of local actors
- Decision making and control of REDD+ funds should be transferred to more downwardly accountable and inclusive institutions – both to ensure a fair distribution of costs and benefits and to support long term goal of good governance.
- National REDD+ activities should be organized in a way that prevents the exclusion of weaker groups and the monopolization of information and funds by elites and professionals (such as consultants, NGOs and “specialists”), and that addresses local historical dynamics.
