The Integrated Strategy to Control Deforestation and Manage Forests is the REDD+ national strategy. Its objective is to reduce deforestation and forest degradation by establishing and promoting forest management in Colombian territories using an integrated rural development approach. This approach should contribute to the wellbeing (buen vivir) of local communities, stimulate local development, increase ecosystem resilience, and thereby foster climate change mitigation and adaptation. This strategy consists of five different strategic axes and five defined objectives. One of these objectives is to reduce emissions from deforestation by 32.4 MtCO2eq in 2030.
