The factsheets focus on the first phase of the study, which began in 2009 and considered REDD+ policies, REDD+ sub-national initiatives, measurements of carbon emissions, synergies between climate change adaptation and REDD+, and REDD+ benefit sharing. The factsheet also notes that the first and second phases of the project will examine multi-level governance, carbon management and land use decisions, and knowledge sharing.
