CIFOR side event at Bonn Climate Change Conference to focus on results-based finance for REDD+

The Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) will host a side event at the Bonn Climate Change Conference, which starts next week in Bonn, Germany.

The session, ‘Measuring national REDD+ performance for the promise of results-based finance’ will take place from 18:30 – 20:00 on 18 May 2016.

CIFOR, Friedrich Schiller University Jena and partners will discuss the practicalities of results-based finance for REDD+. We will present research findings on REDD+ performance at different scales, as well as the mechanisms of benefit-sharing, multi-level governance and land-use incentives.

At the official side event, climate experts and policy makers will be invited to comment on the findings, and discuss the risks and opportunities of results- based finance mechanisms for REDD+ implementation and performance.

Speakers and discussants will address the following questions:

  • Understanding REDD+ on the ground: What and how much has changed? What are the opportunities and challenges?
  • Power and politics in multi-level REDD+ policy arenas: What are the implications for effective policy and benefit-sharing designs?
  • How does this translate into effective, efficient and equitable finance for REDD+ performance?
