2. Appropriate approaches (and adaptation) for implementing REDD+ activities are key to optimum outcomes for biodiversity, carbon, and other ecosystem service benefits.

3. Community forestry can provide an opportunity for REDD+ strategies to enhance biodiversity conservation and ecosystem-based adaptation measures while simultaneously mitigating carbon dioxide.

4. Emerging knowledge on interactions among biodiversity, carbon, and human activities is essential to inform management and policy decisions

2. PES can play a role in reducing deforestation and forest degradation. This has already been demonstrated by PES schemes in many developing countries in the hydropower, water supply, and wildlife conservation and tourism sectors.

3. PES and REDD+ have similar goals to enhance ecosystem services by rewarding/incentivizing forest owners or managers. The design of the REDD+ implementation strategy can benefit from the existing experiences of PES schemes being implemented and legal frameworks in place that provided incentive for improving ecosystem services.

4. Countries can develop robust systems and procedures for linking international REDD payments with domestic PES payments.

5. Performance-based payments, such as PES, can be an important element of national and sub-national REDD mechanisms. However, certain economic, technical, institutional, cultural, and political conditions should be met for making PES an effective instrument for REDD+

2. The value of these co-benefits of forest conservation and sustainable forest management to local communities is far greater than forest carbon payments alone. REDD+ activities should be designed to ensure communities can access those co-benefits.

3.To fully realize the co-benefits of REDD+ activities in Nepal, emphasis should be placed on technologies and methods for cost-effective measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) as well as human and institutional capacity development at different levels. Sustainable financing will be required for REDD+ to become an attractive incentive for improved forest management
