The REDD+ pilot projects in Tanzania have published a report about key questions and options regarding the sharing of REDD+ benefits.

The report provides some options on how benefit sharing could be organised and raises questions that the NGOs, which are implementing the pilot projects, have identified as critical for making decisions about benefit-sharing: What makes benefit sharing fair or equitable? What are the challenges? What criteria can be used? The report does not provide final answers but sets a basis for a discussion on the importance of REDD+ benefit sharing and how critical questions could be addressed.

There is no legislation yet in Tanzania on how REDD+ will be implemented; the National REDD+ Strategy is still a draft, although an advanced draft. The pilot projects, however, had several years to gather experiences with REDD+ readiness on the ground.
