Jurisdictional REDD+ approaches: Lessons from the Governors’ Climate & Forests Task Force.

From 2018 – 2020, UNDP, with funding from the Government of Norway, supported 35 states and provinces in the Governors’ Climate & Forests Task Force (GCFTF) to develop and/or revise jurisdictional strategies and investment plans to reduce emissions from deforestation and degradation (REDD+) and promote low-emissions development.The purpose of this review is to present the findings from a desk survey of the experience to date in these 35 jurisdictions, with a focus on illustrating lessons that can inform future REDD+ and low-emissions development planning and implementation in the GCFTF network and beyond.
