What is the international review mechanism?
REDD+ SES international review provides a formal review of the full process followed to apply REDD+ SES in the country in relation to governance, interpretation and assessment, i.e. the full ten step REDD+ SES process defined in the REDD+ SES Guidelines Version 2 (November 2012). This is undertaken once the assessment report has been published by the country and a report has been produced of the process used for the assessment. The REDD+ SES international review does not assess the content of the country's assessment report (i.e. social and environmental performance versus the principles, criteria and indicators), but assesses the extent to which the REDD+ SES Guidelines have been followed. The REDD+ SES Guidelines require enhanced transparency and a strong country-led, multi-stakeholder process that is expected to lead to a fair and accurate assessment of social and environmental performance. The REDD+ SES international review assesses the extent to which a country can claim that is applying REDD+ SES.
