This book is a result of research projects,on various themes,conducted on 8 different pilot projects implemented by local NGOs in Tanzania.The 15 research chapters in this book touch upon important and relevant themes for REDD+ implementation.The papers assess the architecture of REDD+ pilots and the roles of NGOs.They analyse the pilots in terms of outputs and various types of performance based payments,distribution concerns and participation effects on outputs and result based initiatives in relation to MRV strategies and outcomes. The REDD+ financing mechanism in Tanzania are implemented according to UNFCC decision 4/CP.15 which requires Countries to develop national forest reference emission level (REL) and /or forest reference level (RL) for REDD+. Therefore, empirical analyses and evidence contained in this book are essential for us to learn from, and improve by, for successful future implementations of REDD+.
