FLEGT Week 2015: FLEGT and REDD+ linkages, the Report

The Report

FLEGT and REDD+ linkages

Side event, Thursday 19 March, from 14:30 to 16:00


  • Interactions between FLEGT and REDD+ are increasingly being documented and understood, and first country-level experiences on linking FLEGT and REDD+ are starting to emerge.
  • Experiences from DRC, Ghana, Guyana and Vietnam show the diversity of interactions between FLEGT and REDD+ processes.
  • A good understanding of both processes and of their overlaps is necessary to trigger joint efforts and ensure economies of scale for improving land use governance and law enforcement.  
  • As FLEGT and REDD+ processes are contributing to similar development objectives, a coherent policy framework is needed at the national and global levels to address illegal logging and other drivers of deforestation.
