What we do

The EU REDD Facility supports countries engaged in REDD+ to reduce deforestation and forest degradation through improved forest and land-use governance.

The Facility develops and implements innovative solutions that inform REDD+ and FLEGT policies, support zero-deforestation commitments and promote sustainable supply chains. We collaborate 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.
