Seeing REDD+ through 4Is
July, 2012. Brockhaus, M.; Angelsen, A. Chapter 02. Analysing REDD+: Challenges and choices. Angelsen, A., Brockhaus, M., Sunderlin, W.D. and Verchot, L. (eds). Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), Bogor, Indonesia. Pages 15-30. ISBN: 978-602-8693-80-6
Analysing REDD+ with 4Is – institutions and their path-dependencies and ‘stickiness’, actors and their interests, ideas and information – can be useful to understand what hinders or enables change.
Transformational change beyond the forestry sector is required to fully realise the mitigation potential of REDD+, but economic interests and power structures pose challenges to such change.
REDD+ can also serve – and already does to some extent – as a game changer. New economic incentives, new information, growing public concern about climate change, new actors and new policy coalitions all have the potential to generate transformational change.
