New Asia Pacific Go-REDD+ Issue Examines Pro-poor Benefit Distribution in REDD+

The latest Go-REDD+ issue confronts the challenge of pro-poor benefit distribution in REDD+, particularly in Viet Nam.


The UN-REDD Programme has invested a lot of effort in examining issues related to BDS, especially in Viet Nam. The results of these efforts feature prominently in “Pro-poor benefit distribution in REDD+: Who gets what and why does it matter?” by Essam Yassin Mohammed of the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED). The report investigates two important questions, namely whether benefits should be provided to communities or to households; and whether benefits should be in the form of cash or in-kind (or a mixture of the two).
