Nesting REDD+ Pathways to Bridge Project and Jurisdictional Programs

Document Summary: 

This paper reflects on historic carbon market approaches to Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+), identifying common approaches to crediting REDD+ at various scales, shares case studies of existing country approaches to REDD+, and proposes future options for countries seeking to nest REDD+ at various scales. By discussing the relative merits of on-the-ground and policy-led approaches, we hope to spur new insights and discussion around the role of REDD+ crediting in the coming years. The authors believe more guidance around this particular issue is critical in order to advance the tools needed to reduce emissions in the next decade.
