Graduate students researching REDD+ in Brazil, Indonesia and Peru

A group of eight graduate students working in Brazil, Indonesia and Peru joined CIFOR scientists to help determine what has worked and what hasn’t with the ambitious global strategy to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation known as REDD+. CIFOR's Global Comparative Study on REDD+ has been collecting data, discussing experiences and analyzing research to determine what has worked and what hasn’t with REDD+ across 22 countries, and the eight graduate students are part of efforts to develop a comparative evidence base. Sponsored by Norway’s International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI), these students are speaking to communities in the Amazon, collecting information in Kalimantan, looking at wellbeing outcomes in Peru and more.
