This publication has been developed to provide support to local trainers and facilitators who are engaged in delivering REDD+, climate change related training, and who already have a basic understanding of these subjects.
This question and answer handbook is based on the principle that indigenous peoples and other local communities have the right to self-determination and to give or withold their free, prior and informed consent (FPIC) to externally proposed projects, which may affect their livelihoods, access to land resources, and socio-cultural values and norms. The ten questions and answers discussed in the handbook were developed in response to a growing need to raise awareness about the social and environmental safeguards of REDD+.
These questions are frequently asked by participants during training and capacity development at the local level.
This Q&A handbook is also available in the following languages:
