Despite a large body of literature on potential benefit-sharing mechanisms for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation in Developing Countries (REDD+), the field of REDD+ has lacked global comparative analyses of national REDD+ policies and of the political-economic influences that can either enable or impede the mechanisms. Relatively few studies have investigated the political-economic principles underlying existing benefit-sharing policies and approaches. This working paper builds on a study of REDD+ policies in 13 countries to provide a global overview and up-to-date profile of benefit-sharing mechanisms for REDD+ and of the political-economic factors affecting their design and setting.
