UNDP is one of the three founding agencies of the UN-REDD Programme.

Within the UN-REDD Programme, UNDP is the lead agency on coordination of national UN-REDD Programmes, and for the "Support to National REDD+ Actions - Global Programme" on work areas 2 ( governance), 3 ( transparent, equitable and accountable management of REDD+ funds) and 4 (stakeholder engagement), and contributes actively to the work areas led by FAO and UNEP.

Work areas 2, 3 and 4, taken together, offer a comprehensive package of targeted support, guidance and tools to support and promote greater levels of participation, coordination, effectiveness, accountability and transparency during the planning and implementation of REDD+ strategies in UN-REDD Programme partner countries.

This support addresses REDD+ systems and processes as well as aspects of governance that are key to managing the drivers of deforestation and forest degradation. Coordination, responsiveness and effectiveness are at the core of activities to  strengthen frameworks for implementing REDD+ policies and measures, based on governance priorities determined in a participatory manner, and to build capacity to provide information on safeguards (the focus of work area2).

Transparency, accountability and equity are the objectives of guidance to develop systems for managing and sharing REDD+ revenues and benefits that inspire confidence at the international, national and local level and lead to equitable and sustainable development outcomes (work area 3).

Inclusiveness and full and effective participation are promoted by ensuring that Indigenous Peoples, local communities and other relevant stakeholders are informed, empowered and enabled to meaningfully engage in REDD+ national and international REDD+ decision-making, strategy development and implementation (work area 4).  “
