May, 2012. Leonardo A. Crippa and Gretchen Gordon. Working Paper. Indian Law Resource Center, USA. 28 pages
The REDD+ Principles identify a pathway to implement a human rights-based approach to development within REDD+ initiatives. The goal of the REDD+ Principles is to educate actors engaged in REDD+ and indigenous communities potentially affected by REDD+, regarding the human rights implications of these initiatives. For States and international agencies engaged in REDD+, the REDD+ Principles identify both the applicable international legal obligations and the rights of indigenous peoples that must be protected.
