Abstract: This chapter analyses the legal status and role of REDD-Plus safeguards. It first explains what ‘safeguards’ are and how they are used in international law, to then clarify why REDD-Plus safeguards were adopted, what they require, and their status in international law and the role they play within the overall legal landscape on REDD-Plus. The chapter furthermore assesses the relationship of REDD-Plus safeguards with States’ international obligations and their interpretation by international initiatives established beyond the scope of the UNFCCC, highlighting their specificities and dissimilarities.
