Abstract: 
Forest loss and degradation remains a leading environmental problem. The long history of sustainable forest management has often failed to meet expectations - constrained by funding, governance, capacity and competing interests. Initiatives from the climate change policy arena are opening new ways for a broader mainstreaming of forest management, specially through foreign aid mechanisms towards Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+). This paper addresses key questions regarding the potential of REDD+ to support sustainable forest management in the context of complex, multiple stakeholder interests and negotiations, including those of local resource users and international donors.
