Over the past decades, large areas of the world’s forests have been depleted and degraded worldwide. To respond, several international policy approaches and instruments have emerged. Although many of them are being widely implemented, there is less agreement and a lack of systematic knowledge about their effects and impacts. This session aims to present and discuss up-to-date research approaches and ongoing studies that employ a variety of methodological approaches to explore the impacts of two major international forest governance initiatives: FLEGT and REDD+.
With presentations of NewGo! researchers Yitagesu Tekle and Sven Wunder.
