This lecture will discuss current trends in protecting community rights to natural resources in REDD+ countries and will highlight some of the key initiatives such as the Dedicated Grant Mechanism for Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (DGM) that have the potential to fundamentally change the way forest dwelling communities participate in policy and decision making and benefit from REDD+ payments.
