Conservation trust funds as a model for REDD+ national financing

Conservation trust funds as a model for REDD+ national financing
REDD+ funds modelled after conservation trust funds (CTFs) can provide stable long-term funding with high credibility for financing major REDD+ activities.
CTFs can function as administrators of REDD+ funds, as managers of PES, or as carbon brokers.

Existing CTFs have high-level political support even though they are independent of government; using them to distribute international REDD+ funding could therefore mitigate concerns about loss of sovereignty while also reassuring funders and buyers of REDD+ credits.
