A gender perspective is thus essential for the development of equitable, effective and efficient REDD+ policies and guidelines that ensure women have equal access to and control over any potential REDD+ benefits. Countries can identify specific gender considerations that can be addressed by REDD+, for example, and take them into account when planning and designing REDD+ policies and initiatives. This assessment has been conducted to identify and understand the degree to which gender considerations have been addressed in FCPF REDD+ readiness documents. Findings offer insights into the ways in which national governments and the FCPF itself are recognising gender considerations in the context of their REDD+ policymaking and planning with respect to key cross-cutting gender issues.
