Complete Title: 
Challenges for pro-poor benefit sharing schemes in the implementation of REDD+ in Mexico
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

Many environmental and social benefits will result from implementing activities to tackle emissions from deforestation and forest degradation and to promote the conservation of forest carbon stocks, as well as from the sustainable management of forests and carbon enhancements in developing countries (REDD+). Benefit sharing in REDD+ refers to the ways in which the financial benefits resulting from these activities will be distributed among different local stakeholders within a country. It is necessary to create ad hoc institutional frameworks and design equitable and transparent benefit sharing schemes such that the rewards may be distributed among all the many stakeholders within the country who have in some way participated in the achievements. This report presents a summary of the gaps and problems in the design of benefit sharing schemes, focusing particularly on the need to develop pro-poor schemes, and includes the Forest Dialogues' main recommendations and suggestions. An assessment of both the challenges and the potential paths for implementation is included in the example provided by the case of implementation of REDD+ in Mexico.
