Approaches to benefit sharing: a preliminary comparative analysis of 13 REDD+ countries

This working paper builds on a study of REDD+ policies in 13 countries to provide a global overview and up‑to‑date profile of benefit‑sharing mechanisms for REDD+ and of the political‑economic factors affecting their design and setting. Five types of benefit‑sharing models relevant to REDD+ and natural resource management are used to create an organising framework for identifying what does and does not work and to examine the structure of rights under REDD+. The authors also consider the mechanisms in light of five prominent discourses on the question of who should benefit from REDD+ and, by viewing REDD+ through a 3E (effectiveness, efficiency, equity) lens, map out some of the associated risks for REDD+ outcomes.
