REDD+ in Zambia
This factsheet presents an overview of Reducing Emissions through Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) in Zambia. REDD+ is a method designed to reduce global emissions caused by deforestation, and creating a financial value for the protection of carbon stored in forests.
Zambia is one of 16 countries in the world engaged in the UN-REDD Program, which aims to prepare countries for future REDD+ implementation. REDD+ has been identified as a potential mechanism to sustainably and meaningfully address (reduce) Zambia’s high rate of deforestation, while promoting local conservation, forest resources management, sustainable community development and poverty reduction.
