The LoI process was always expected to be a complex and innovative exercise involving many stakeholders and relationships, with progress marked by slow, directional change over a long period. The LoI therefore called for independent reviews, and these occurred in 2011, 2013 and 2018. The present review was done in Indonesia in August 2018, and is based on inputs from around 70 knowledge holders at 40 relevant institutions. Section 1 explains the context, Section 2 summarises the progress made against the various themes and milestones in the LoI, as contained in the terms of reference of the mission, and Section 3 offers a brief discussion of strategic issues, conclusions, and some suggestions for development of the Partnership. The findings are based on the opinions expressed by informants but do not reflect any official position of any institution involved in the REDD+ Partnership or the review.
