REDD+ project development activities in Cambodia were initiated in 2008 and these initiatives continue to inform, as well as influence, the development of the national framework for sustainable forestry. The collective experiences of these REDD+ initiatives at the project level underscore the importance of standardizing the procedures to meet the technical specifications associated with carbon standards to ensure that current and future REDD+ projects are developed and implemented in an efficient and effective manner.
