Abstract: This study was guided by the Empowered Deliberative Democracy (EDD) discourse. We analyzed how the Tanzanian Community Carbon Enterprise (CCE) model could reinforce the representation of disadvantaged groups in Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+). The findings from Tanzanian suggest unmet conditions with disadvantages groups’ representation in local decision-making and project implementation. We argue that mechanism to support horizontal accountability could include audits and monitoring carried out by disadvantaged groups. This type of internal mechanism could for example allow careful consideration of carbon responsibilities and to allow disadvantaged groups to influence service delivery and implementation.
