Trade-offs in REDD+ funds distribution

Models of the global effects of various fund allocation scenarios for the international program on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) suggest that for a given level of emissions reduction, optimal biodiversity conservation can be achieved for only a moderate increase in cost; adding modest distributional equity targets does not significantly reduce the effect of a given amount of funding on carbon and biodiversity outcomes, but adding sufficiently ambitious equity targets does, according to the authors.
