    Countries are encouraged to identify drivers of deforestation and forest degradation (DD) in the development of national strategies and action plans for REDD+. In this letter we provide an assessment of proximate drivers of DD by synthesizing empirical data reported by countries as part of their REDD+ readiness activities and scientific literature.
