Essentials of REDD+ A Handbook for Rural Women and Community Leaders in Cameroon

It is important for women leaders, especially those in forest-dependent communities, to be aware of discussions and decisions on climate change, especially REDD+, and participate in the discussions and decision-making processes. 

This guide is therefore intended to inform, sensitize and educate community leaders - especially women- on REDD+ and related initiatives as well as address women’s concerns and assure they reap benefits from REDD+. This guide is divided into four sections, namely:

  • Understanding Climate Change
  • The concept of REDD+
  • REDD+ in Cameroon
  • Gender and REDD+
