Jeannette Gurung, Kalpana Giri, Abidah Setyowati and Elizabeth Lebow, ‘Getting REDD+ Right for Women: An Analysis of the Barriers and Opportunities for Women’s Participation in the REDD+ Sector in Asia’, Washington, DC: USAID, September 2011.
With the right interventions, approaches, and institutional structures, it should be possible for poor, forest-dependent community members to obtain multiple benefits from Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+), but building the necessary frameworks and institutions will require collaboration between multiple stakeholders from the international down to the local level. This assessment looks at these opportunities and barriers for the Asia region with a focus on gender and, more specifically, on how women can be more involved in the design and implementation of REDD+.
