This briefing paper aims to stimulate thinking about process and content issues within national REDD strategies. Under different thematic headings it poses some key questions for exploring in country options for REDD.
This paper has been prepared as an input into a new initiative, “South-South REDD: A Brazil-Mozambique initiative for zero deforestation with pan-African relevance” that is being funded by the Norwegian Embassy. This new initiative will provide technical and participatory process support for the development of a National REDD Strategy and National REDD Programme in Mozambique.
While this briefing note was designed for Mozambique, these themes and questions have broader relevance for the development of REDD. The paper also includes boxes outlining how IIED might share its experience to help provide answers to some of these questions.
