Explain in practicable terms key concepts rated to equitable benefit sharing, including transparency, inclusion, participation, representation, accountability and fairness.
Develop stepwise guidance and tools on how to design and implement a Benefit Sharing Mechanism in accordance with these tenants.
Provide case studies ranging from REDD+ to Payment for Ecosystem Services, ecotourism, and other nature-based economic initiatives to demonstrate best practices to implement.
