The various approaches to meeting different REDD+ safeguard requirements have generated a wealth of experience for countries, and, in the spirit of South-South cooperation and learning, a knowledge exchange event was held in Accra, Ghana on 12–13 June 2018,to capture and share these experiences. This information brief presents the issues discussed during the event as well as key experiences and lessons learned from the participating countries in general. The brief is structured around two main themes:
1) how to address and respect REDD+ safeguards; and
2) how to design and operate safeguards information systems.
