ClientEarth and the World Resources Institute believe that effective implementation of the REDD+ safeguards adopted by the Conference of the Parties at Cancun (COP-16) will be essential to successful REDD+ projects and programs. At COP-16, Parties determined that the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technical Advice (SBSTA) should develop guidance relating to the safeguard information system referred to in the Cancun Agreements. Together with Observers, Parties have been encouraged to submit their views on what guidance is needed.

Specifically, submissions were welcomed on the following elements of safeguard information systems: characteristics; design; provision of information; potential barriers, if any, to providing information on addressing and respecting safeguards; and other relevant issues.
