REDD+ revisited - steady pace or passed momentum?

Focali brief 2012:05 by Westholm, L., Mattsson, E., Ostwald, M.

 
Two years ago Focali published an update on the latest development in REDD+ pilot initiatives (Focali Brief 2010:04). We now revisit the REDD+ scene to take a look at what has happened with the initiatives, investments and readiness work as the negotiations seem to have lost momentum. The brief reviews developments between pilot countries and the three major multilateral schemes; UN-REDD, Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) and Forest Investment Program (FIP) and provides an overview of the donors contributing to these schemes. 
 
The brief concludes that REDD+ experienced a peak in 2010, as a discussion topic and as a recipient of public and private funding and discuss what has happened since then and ask the following: was the momentum for REDD+ in 2010 a passing fancy or is there genuine commitment to achieving consensus and driving long-term change.
