REDD stands for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation. [1]

REDD+ is a framework agreed by countries in the international climate negotiations that aims to curb climate change by reducing deforestation and forest degradation, and sustainably managing and conserving forests in developing countries.

The “+” in REDD+ signifies the role of conservation, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks.

Forest conservation and restoration can provide more than one quarter of the greenhouse gas emissions reductions needed to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.
