The objective of the * REDD + mechanism is to mitigate climate change while ensuring sustainable forest management. A mechanism for managing REDD + complaints and sharing information on the progress of this project has been put in place. This initiative takes into account the legal framework governing the carbon market, the benefit-sharing plan and the performance measurement mechanism. In this sense, the points relating to the planning and coordination of activities and the sharing of rewards at the level of VOIs (Malagasy expression designating the contractual base communities) and municipalities will be prioritized. For Madagascar, the signing of the PRE-AA (Emissions Reduction Program-Atiala Atsinanana) sales contract, which is the first REDD + jurisdictional program, is scheduled for early 2021.
