Complete Title: 
Design of pro-poor REDD+ interventions and benefit distribution systems for the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

This document discusses the potential for designing pro-poor systems for the distribution of benefits derived from the reduction of emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, conservation of forest carbon stocks, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks (REDD+) in the Yucatan Peninsula (comprised by the states of Campeche, Quintana Roo and Yucatan), Mexico. The paper describes the technical and legal constraints associated with benefit distribution in general and outlines current plans for REDD+ early action in the Peninsula, under which local development agencies will help ejidos draw up broad plans for sustainable rural development which may include many activities in addition to those that directly save carbon.
