FIELD's Updated Guide for REDD-plus negotiators


The purpose of this guide is to assist developing country negotiators and others who are working on REDD-plus.

FIELD provides this information on a neutral basis. The guide is available in English, French and Spanish. Electronic versions can be found at

This version has been updated in February 2013. Please note that final versions of documents from the Doha Climate Change Conference were not available at the time of writing, so the guide includes advance or draft versions in part III.


REDD-plus is a very complicated issue. It is complicated technically. It is complicated politically. Although many countries are interested in reaching agreement on REDD-plus they also have different priorities and different views on key issues in the negotiations.

The negotiations on REDD-plus have complicated links with several other issues that are also under negotiation, which can make it difficult to maintain an overview and keep up with the implications of different proposals.

FIELD is grateful to the Forum on Readiness for REDD and support from the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad), which made this update of the guide possible.

The guide is divided into three parts:

  •  Part I considers REDD-plus and related issues in the negotiations
  •  Part II contains general negotiating tips for new REDD-plus negotiators and others
  • Part III contains UNFCCC documents that may be referred to in REDD-plus negotiations
