Thousands came together in "Hopenhagen" from 7-18 December 2009 for what was the most covered and talked about of any United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNF CCC) Conference of the Parties (COP) to date. Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries (REDD-plus)1 was one of few issues on which progress was made. However, implications of the wider negotiations for REDD-plus are not yet clear. This summary considers the outcome of the COP15 negotiations, focusing on the status of the REDD-plus provisions and what they may mean in terms of the socio-economic implications of REDD-plus and the effective implementation of activities on the ground.
