Description

This report is written in French.

  • This report highlights successes of developing countries and their strategies for reducing deforestation and as a result, their emissions of greenhouse gases.
  • The authors note that decreases in deforestation are primarily a result of REDD+ programs, including payments for ecosystem services, better law enforcement, governance reforms, moratoria on deforestation practices, and incorporating the environment in development efforts.
  • Other successes come from policy changes and programs that have had intended and unintended positive impacts on forests.
