Performance indicators and REDD+ implementation
MetadataShow full item record
<div style="margin-bottom: 5px;">REDD+ aims to achieve a defined impact - reduced emissions - and payments may be made based on performance towards achieving this goal. This implies that there must be assessments of the results of REDD+ programmes. </div><div style="margin-bottom: 5px;">In the medium-term, most payments will be for readiness and policy reforms, rather than proven emissions reductions. Hence good performance indicators are critical for all three REDD+ phases, in particular for phase 2 where the focus is on policy performance. </div>Valuable lessons on governance indicators can be learned from the aid sector: avoid seeking the perfect indicator and use expert judgment extensively.
