RCCC-UI is Hosting A Master Class on Policy Analysis for REDD+: Within a Decentralised Context. REDD+ requires developing countries (and local governments) to set aside additional forest conservation areas that may not necessarily yield additional environmental services for local residents. Additional forest conservation competes with other land-use activities, such as commercial logging, timber plantations and oil palm plantations, which can legally take place in productive forestlands. REDD+ involves technical complexity in terms of its design and implementation and it is also very contentious as stakeholders have different values towards land use and forest management. For this reason, local governments need to be familiar with frameworks and tools of policy analysis for REDD+ and, most importantly, have the capacity to define policy problems and solutions with relevant stakeholders.
