This report shows that the process of preparation for REDD in Mesoamerica is characterized for being relatively widespread, although there are enormous challenges regarding information, participation and consultation. In spite of the formal arguments, the preparation processes face serious challenges in terms of a more genuine and commitment with the consultation processes with various stakeholders related to forestry, especially in the case of indigenous peoples and forest communities. While the process of preparing for REDD in Mesoamerica is recent, evidence of a rapid evolution is important and there is an urgent need for resolute commitment to openness and inclusion of stakeholders, which will be critical to greater legitimacy in the process of preparation and implementation of REDD + strategies.
