Reducing emissions from the global forest sector has an important role to play in both mitigation and adaptation. The United Nations’ Collaborative programme to Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (UN REDD Programme) assists developing countries in building capacity to reduce emissions and participate in a future REDD+ mechanism under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). As part of its mandate, the programme supports national systems for transparent, equitable, credible and accountable management of REDD+ funding. Accordingly, it generates knowledge products and provides practical guidance to partner countries to identify and mitigate potential corruption risks in the design, implementation and payment distribution processes of REDD+.
