Many UN-REDD Programme partner countries are developing approaches to ensure that their REDD+ plans take account of the Cancun safeguards, including through enhancing social and environmental benefits. This is the country resource hub for multiple benefits, please also see the safeguards hub for resources on country approaches to safeguards and safeguard information systems.

UN-REDD Programme supported outputs on planning for additional benefits are available below.  Mapping tutorials and tools are also available (in English, French, Mongolian, Spanish and Vietnamese). 

 

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.
