REDD Readiness

Definition

Generally speaking, REDD-Readiness is a national strategy to prepare for a post-2012 REDD payment mechanism funded by multi-laterals. REDD-Readiness is normally developed in-part to slot within a United Nations system and in-part for integration with private carbon markets. This tends to entail the national-level implementation of REDD, rather than the project level implementation. (Forest Carbon)
