A manual for indigenous community trainers While the first guide in our manual series, "What is REDD?" aims to help indigenous communities to understand what REDD+ is and what its implications may be for them more generally, this manual looks at REDD+ on the project level. The purpose of this manual is to provide guidance to indigenous trainers to prepare and conduct trainings on Community-based REDD+. These trainings should help communities acquire the knowledge and skills needed to take a decision on whether to join a REDD+ project, and if they do, to be able to fully and effectively participate in it. The trainers manual is accompanied by a separate manual prepared for participants attending training on Community-based REDD+, and for indigenous communities who want to learn about CB REDD+ on their own. You can find more information and download the manual for indigenous communities on AIPP's website through the link to your right. If you are not familiar with the REDD agreement you can find more information in our guide What is REDD? A Guide for Indigenous Communities. 2nd Edition
