My interests include working to improve forest law and governance in REDD schemes.
One key interest is to improve access to information, public participation, and access to justice in environmental matters. Our rights and governance work aims to ensure that forest-dependent communities are able to effectively engage in the reform the forest law and governance systems in their countries; and embedding the rights of indigenous peoples and other forest-dependent communities in financing mechanisms to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+).
ClientEarth is working to ensure that REDD+ readiness funds provided by multilateral and bilateral initiatives are delivered in a transparent and accountable manner. Our advocacy work is focused in improving the regulatory frameworks of the initiatives.
ClientEarth is working to ensure that REDD+ programmes and initiatives effectively address governance challenges and realistically implement REDD+ safeguards addressing biodiversity as well as stakeholder-participation and other governance concerns.
