It is the purpose of this report to consider four key areas and outline the challenges,
opportunities and possible policy solutions: given current progress nationally and
internationally. These areas are:
How can the ‘plus’ in REDD+ (enhancement of forest carbon stocks, including
sustainable forest management) be best achieved?
How can agriculture be addressed as a driver of deforestation?
How can soil carbon stocks be enhanced in forestry and agriculture?
How can agriculture and forestry be linked
