Abstract: REDD+ projects have gained prominence on the international agenda as an alternative to face climate change. An increasing number of initiatives are implemented around the world, especially in Latin America. In Brazil, REDD+ projects have been developed predominantly in the Amazon forest. There is a scarce number of researches regarding the involvement of local actors at REDD+ governance. In the case of indigenous lands it arouses particular interest when it comes to governance since it originates from distinct social value systems, sources of knowledge and symbolism. Thus, this article aims to analyse how organisations can work together to build and develop a REDD+ project involving indigenous people in Brazilian Amazon forest. By studying the case of Surui Forest Carbon Project it was found that organisations could play a key role in this scenario.
