To protect against potential risks and promote benefits from REDD+, seven safeguards must be supported throughout the implementation of REDD+ actions. These are known as the "Cancun safeguards", and were agreed 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. Spatial analysis products whose goals include safeguard support are found on the Multiple Benefits Country Resources Hub.
