This analytical report brings together information, analyses, and conclusions on issues relevant to the design and implementation of national REDD+ strategies. It aims to promote a discussion on the role of community forest management as a strategic option to promote REDD+ goals, and, conversely, on ways REDD+ can foster community management of forests, both in theory and in practice. The results presented here are based on a fact-finding mission to Brazil by policy makers and experts from six African countries, in February 2011. Key issues related to REDD+ were addressed in seminars, field visits and workshops during a 10-day journey.
