The Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation program, or REDD+, has been agreed by the global village first consensus step to establish a world acceptable forest governance mechanism and achieve both mitigation and adaptation of the effect of climate change effect on local, regional and national scale respectively. This review gives comprehensive examination concerning the formation mechanisms related to REDD+, snapshot of REDD up to date, theory of Climate change and gender justice as explained by Robert and Peluso theory on gender in Forest-Based communities. This review majorly included dimensions such as: learning from recent experience, right and tenure issue, participation, designing of REDD, sharing of the burden, distribution of ben- efits, local peoples voice, gender responsiveness to REDD and climate policy, Ribot and Peluso Access theory on gender and climate justice, REDD and gender decision making. Different research works has confirmed that communities living adjacent to forest are not adequately included in present REDD+ projects based on the criteria listed above, most especially women. Furthermore, institutional arrangement, designing, participation, right to issue, socio-cultural, unequal benefit sharing were reviewed also. REDD+ is also rec- ognized as an economic idea about free markets which bargains peoples’ connections with the natural environment through moneti- zation of nature. The review concluded on a structure which addresses gender future causes and warning related to REDD+ climate justice in form of procedural and distributive mechanisms for communities living adjacent to forest based on publication or studies must be strictly adhere to. This review therefore also assessed gender and climate justice in form of procedural and distributive lens in Forest Based communities where climate change action and adaptation plan has been piloted (such as REDD) and recommended that the socio-economic, access to some rights in form of resources, decision making and participation, sharing of both the effect and benefits accrued in resources conservation in making adaptation planning workable and gender-balanced factors must be addressed. The mechanism of benefit sharing which is the tenet of distributive justices in REDD+ study site and its delivery system based on gender must also be determined by evaluating the mode of disseminating the benefits, type of benefits, and the relationship that exist between the gender and policy makers. Finally, the response of the gender and climate justice must be weighed and the identification of important factors that hinder the wellbeing, procedural and distributive justice should be look into and address urgently.
