The Bonn Climate Change Conference (SB50) hosts a wide range of events, meetings, and negotiating sessions that will set the stage for raising ambition to curb greenhouse gas emissions, accelerate resilience-building efforts, and ensure that climate policy is built on a solid foundation of the best available science and knowledge.

The Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) will elaborate the finding of its long-term REDD+ research at SB50 through “Result-based payments for REDD+: Experiences and way forward” session on Tuesday, 25 June 2019.

Result-based payments for REDD+

Experiences and way forward

Result-based payments are a cornerstone of REDD+. So far, 39 countries have submitted reference levels (RLs) to UNFCCC. We discuss experiences with setting RLs and applying for result-based payments, and with performance-based finance, to meet climate change objectives. We examine key challenges, and opportunities for improvement.



  • Results-based payment: who should be paid and for what?
  • Incorporating Blue Carbon in REDD+
  • Prospects of performance based financing to promote ecosystem management
