In addition to its National UN-REDD Programme, the Philippines is receiving targeted support that seeks to :
- Contribute to the initial REDD-Plus Strategy by supporting activities that will help identify and characterize corruption risks related to REDD-Plus and consequently identify mechanisms that will mitigate, if not totally eliminate, and then manage the identified corruption risks.
- Contribute to the crafting of institutional frameworks for equitable, transparent and accountable benefit distribution systems in REDD-Plus
- Develop and pilot a capacity building programme for the provision of information on REDD-Plus safeguards at the community level.
