REDD+ in Uganda: access rights and equity must come first

This policy brief presents critical equity issues to be addressed in the lead up to REDD+ implementation. To reduce deforestation and degradation, REDD+ projects need to be equitable in both procedures and outcomes. REDD+ brings risks and opportunities for rural Ugandans and successful projects must gain and maintain the trust and support of diverse local communities and avoid imposing costs upon them. There is scant evidence from REDD+ pilot projects in Uganda and limited lessons have been drawn from relevant conservation and development sectors, creating a need to scrutinise the context in which REDD+ projects and safeguards are to be implemented.
