<div style="margin-bottom: 5px;">Analysing REDD+ with 4Is – <i> institutions</i> and their path-dependencies and ‘stickiness', actors and their <i> interests, ideas</i> and <i> information</i> – can be useful to understand what hinders or enables change.</div><div style="margin-bottom: 5px;">Transformational change beyond the forestry sector is required to fully realise the mitigation potential of REDD+, but economic interests and power structures pose challenges to such change.</div> REDD+ can also serve – and already does to some extent – as a game changer. New economic incentives, new information, growing public concern about climate change, new actors and new policy coalitions all have the potential to generate transformational change.
