Welcome to SNV's website on REDD+. SNV has over 40 Advisors working on REDD+ across 14 countries in Africa and Asia. The goal of the REDD+ programme is to support a REDD+ mechanism, which benefits the poor and helps to protect biodiversity.

The projects we work on include supporting the protection of forests by providing incentives for communities to manage these resources; as well as piloting and introducing REDD+ compatible solutions in those sectors driving deforestation and forest degradation, namely the Agriculture and Renewable Energy sectors. SNV established the REDD+ Energy and Agriculture Programme (REAP) to advance understanding of the interface between agriculture and energy use across different forest landscapes in order to support low emission, pro-poor development pathways.

Across the three sectors we are developing Knowledge Products to advance understanding, piloting landscape based interventions and scaling up impact by working with partners and through knowledge platforms. Our three banners above provide further information on our work.
