TGCC Tool: REDD+ Rights and Benefits Assessment

Document Title: Assessment Tool for Clarifying Rights to Derive Benefits from REDD+ Activities

This “Rights and Benefits” assessment tool is intended to help identify changes in national and sub-national natural resources rights and tenure governance laws, regulations, and policies, as well as in the REDD+ program itself, that will enable all stakeholders, including those for whom natural resources rights are presently unresolved or insecure, to benefit from, or at least not be harmed by, REDD+ programs. As a planning tool, it aims to identify the legal, regulatory, and policy enabling conditions around resource governance for national or regional REDD+ program. As such, it does not assess impacts of existing REDD+ pilot projects on stakeholders at the local level, but is rather focused as a planning tool.
