Design and Implementation of a National Stakeholder Consultation Process of the National REDD+ Strategy

Indufor supported the design and conduct of national stakeholder consultation as part of the preparation for Guatemala´s REDD+ Strategy, funded by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) from 2017-2018.

As per FCPF and UN-REDD+ requirements, as well as Guatemala´s legal framework, the consultation followed the principles of free, prior and informed consultation (FPIC), and a culturally and gender-sensitive approach.
