Prepared by ICEM, International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), and School of Environmental Science and Management (SchEM), the ESMF provides a framework for effective management of environmental and social issues in implementing the REDD+ Strategy. It seeks to both enhance the environmental and social development benefits of REDD+ actions and projects and mitigate any adverse impacts.

The report sets out a mechanism for monitoring the environmental and social outcomes of implementing the REDD+ strategy and arrangements for relevant stakeholder participation in this process – which specifies appropriate roles and responsibilities; and provides an outline of the necessary reporting procedures for managing and monitoring environmental and social concerns related to project implementation.
