Inspiring Practices

What is an Inspiring Practice?
We use the term ‘Inspiring Practices’ to define valuable knowledge and experiences from various projects that can help us learn and improve the way we do REDD+. Inspiring Practices can be based on both successful or difficult experiences because we often learn the most when our work doesn’t go as planned.
