REDD+ money for green results? What REDD+ finance needs to succeed


Successful implementation of REDD+ depends not only on sufficient finance, but also on the right governance for transparent, accountable interaction. This session starts with an exploration of REDD+ finance flows from donor to recipient countries, identifying where they go and where not, analyzing what this means for decisions on REDD+ finance and its management, and drawing conclusions for further action.
