    Research Activities: Since 2007, at the 13th Conference of the Parties in 2007, Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation, known as REDD+, has become a strategic issue in the climate change and development agendas for the period post 2012. REDD+ has the potential to affect forest dwellers lives in various ways that could include both benefits, by providing environmental services incomes, as well as threats, by restricting access and extraction right to forest dwellers and indigenous peoples to their natural endowment. I am interested in understanding how REDD+ activities can to consider the livelihoods needs of the local communities since access to the forest and its resources is essential for forest dwelling communities and their cultures. My research, therefore, focuses in understanding how can REDD+ be implemented in indigenous communities without undermining local livelihoods. Using a participatory approach, I am exploring the following issues: the conditions under which agroforestry could become part of the REDD+ ”toolkit”; the information and capacity building needs for effective participation of indigenous peoples in REDD+; the role of local governance in REDD+ leakage and implementation; selective logging compatibility with REDD+ and the social and economic impacts of REDD+ initiatives.
