What we do

The EU REDD Facility supports countries in testing strategic and innovative solutions to inform the design, implementation and monitoring of REDD+ policies and zero-deforestation commitments. The Facility collaborates with a broad range of stakeholders in the public and private sectors and civil society organisations to contribute to subnational, national, EU and international policy-making. Our work at the interface of REDD+ and FLEGT processes addresses topics related to land-use governance, tenure and agricultural drivers of deforestation.
