REDD+ in Burkina Faso – Supporting climate-smart development in communities

To address land and forest degradation, integrated land management is necessary to reconcile development and natural resources conservation. Through its REDD+ program, Burkina Faso is testing an innovative approach specific to Sahelian countries and dry forests. The approach is based on strengthening governance and implementing multiple decentralized actions to help communities and local governments design and implement investments that protect their natural capital. Burkina Faso's REDD+ Investment Program, currently under design, will replicate these lessons at scale.
