Framework for Clarifying the Cancun Safeguards

Country Approach to Safeguards: Framework for Clarifying the Cancun Safeguards

This document presents a non-prescriptive and indicative list of key issues that countries may wish to consider when clarifying each of the seven broad principles embodied in the Cancun safeguards relevant to the specific country context. The substantive content of this framework comprises an elaboration of the Cancun safeguards from an international legal and normative best practice perspective, drawing primarily on the: (2015) UN-REDD Benefits & Risks Tool (BeRT v2.0), (2014) Meridian paper REDD+ Safeguards: Practical Considerations for Developing a Summary of Information, (2013) ClientEarth Guide to Understanding and Implementing the UNFCCC REDD+ Safeguards, and the (2012) UN-REDD Social and Environmental Principles and Criteria.
