The article aims to contribute to efforts undertaken to link REDD+ and FLEGT processes. It argues that although REDD+ and FLEGT adopt different approaches, they have similar objectives and are faced with common and overlapping risks. The article looks at safeguards adopted under REDD+ and FLEGT to overcome these risks and explores potential synergies (in terms of content and process), which could be built upon to avoid duplication of efforts and reinforce the effectiveness of each process.
