This book highlights the importance of designing clear frameworks of enabling policies, laws and institutions to structure and guide the implementation of REDD+ and draws on examples from countries that have already taken steps to implement or prepare for the implementation of REDD+ through their legal framework. It aims to support greater understanding of the international requirements for REDD+, as well as the additional legal enabling conditions that are needed to ensure its successful implementation and permanence, while also providing indicative guidance on how countries can meet these requirements through their legal frameworks.
