In order to protect against these potential risks while promoting benefits, seven safeguards are in place that must be supported throughout the implementation of REDD+ actions. These are known as the "Cancun safeguards", and were agreed to at the 16th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate held in Cancun in 2010 (COP16).

Many UN-REDD partner countries are developing safeguards approaches and information systems with UN-REDD Programme support. To help share the latest information on country progress, this page includes links to workshop reports and materials (especially from 2015 onwards) as well as more formally published outputs.

This week representatives from a range of government, civil society and community organisations are meeting in Myanmar to review the country’s first Summary of Information on the safeguards.
