International REDD+ Standards and Financing: Eligibility Requirement
This paper aims to provide a summary of existing opportunities for REDD+ finance, specifically for result-based payments. Financial opportunities for result-based payments are often linked to specific methodological standards. This paper provides an overview of these standards as well.
In addition, the paper seeks to provide a general overview of how REDD+ finance may flow when different spatial scales of implementation are
considered. For this purpose, the paper elaborate on the concept of nesting as a potential technical solution to harmonize carbon accounting, benefits sharing and crediting across spatial scales.
Further, to facilitate information exchange on these topics, the paper introduce the International REDD+ Finance and Standards Tool, a website to centralize information about financial opportunities and REDD+ standards and to provide tools to further understand REDD+ standards. This tool was developed by Conservation International, The Nature Conservancy and the United States Forest Service in 2022 with funding from the United States Department of State and United States Agency for International Development.
