While the AWG-LCA decision forms the basis for safeguards in the context of support for readiness and REDD+, questions remain as to how they will be interpreted and applied, the extent of the benefit that they can provide and the challenges in their implementation. This background paper seeks to contribute to the discussion on practical experiences regarding safeguards by informing workshop6 participants about current approaches to the application of social and environmental standards and principles. It highlights the current REDD+ safeguard initiatives from the FCPF, UN- REDD Programme, and other initiatives, and the lessons learned and anticipated challenges to ap- plication of REDD+ safeguards.
