The aim of climate change mitigation and adaptation programs are to protect all the Earth’s inhabitants from the serious threats posed by climate change. Safeguards ensure both mitigation and adaptation activities truly address these purposes.
The rights-based safeguards described in this report are social safeguards designed by the Civil Society Network for Climate Justice to become a framework for climate change mitigation and adaptation in general, and Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD) in particular. They take the form of considerations for accepting, operationalising,and monitoring and evaluating REDD. These safeguards are designed notonly as tools for inclusion in on-going REDD programs, but also asprinciples to be used from the outset, when REDD is still underconsideration.
