Key messages
• Many developing countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs)
recognise the important role of forests and have put forward mitigation
measures; however, these measures do not directly aim at reducing emissions.
• REDD+ is included in most developing countries’ NDCs and climate change
policies, but drivers of deforestation and forest degradation are not fully
• NDCs will be ineffective in achieving their intended outcomes unless they
include clear policies and measures to tackle the drivers of deforestation
and forest degradation, as well as a transparent monitoring and evaluation
