This document contains an overview of the rationale of the country profiles. It outlines the main sections and the roles of the research team members, and provides guiding questions to facilitate and standardise the elaboration of the profiles across countries.
The purpose of the country profile is to provide an overview of the contextual conditions that affect the REDD+ policy environment in a specific country, along with a preliminary 3E (effective, efficient and equitable) assessment of the REDD+ proposals for that country. The profile is compiled based on reviews of existing literature, national and international data and reviews of legislation and policies, as well as selected expert interviews. As such, it provides the background and the preliminary analysis of the context in which national REDD+ strategies are being developed.
