Shaping policy for development
Integrating REDD+ into a green economytransition
Opportunities and challenges

 Clear links exist between REDD+ and green economy objectives, bothof which call for a change in the business-as-usual economicdevelopment in order to slow the loss of natural capital;
 Although an aggregate value is elusive, the multiple benefits of REDD+ provide a clear rationale for the integration of REDD+ in agreen economy transition. This includes the enhanced provision of ecosystem services, in addition to climate change mitigation, and thepotential to deliver various social benefits;
 Although challenges remain, integrating REDD+ within a greeneconomy transition could maximise synergies in policy and planning,as well as reduce the transaction and implementation costs of pursingeach independently.
