Towards transformative forest governance in meeting Climate Goals

Digital Room 2

Transformational change is required to address the climate crises, ecosystem services and biodiversity loss/fragmentation and growing inequality. However, it is crucial to understand how transformational change should be interpreted, who decides what kind of transformation is needed, of what and for whom? What principles guide those decisions, and how are decision-makers held accountable? Who will win and who will lose? There is limited data on the effectiveness of different transformational change approaches such as REDD+. This session brings policymakers, donors, practitioners and local communities to reflect on lessons on good practices on transformative forest governance through the lens of rights, power and social justice and propose a future pathway to develop and implement effective, efficient, and equitable climate and forest policies.
