PUBLICATION: Securing Tenure Rights and Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD)

The Rights and Resources Initiative (RRI) contributed a new Social Development Working Paper for the World Bank's Social Dimensions of Climate Change series. Securing Tenure Rights and Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD) contributes to the discussion of scaling-up the recognition of tenure rights within the efforts to reduce forest carbon emissions, and to put the costs of recognizing tenure rights in a broader perspective.

This Social Development Working Paper attempts to contribute to the discussion of scaling-up the recognition of tenure rights within the efforts to reduce forest carbon emissions and to put the costs of recognizing tenure rights in a broader perspective. It is organized into three sections: first, an examination of the role of tenure in reducing forest carbon emissions and enhancing carbon sequestration capacities; second, an overview of lessons learned from legally recognizing customary tenure rights, and; third, an analysis of the costs of recognizing tenure and the projected costs of an international REDD scheme.
