This project developed tools that are contributing to developing an effective, efficient and equitable alternative to the REDD+ mechanism, which had previously been repeatedly rejected by the Bolivian government. It has shown how to create a mechanism that takes advantage of the positive aspects of REDD+ while minimizing the negative aspects. Such a mechanism would have to combine both ‘carrots’ (such as financial and technical support for integral forest management) and ‘sticks’ (taxes on deforestation) in order to achieve the most...
