Code REDD and International Union for the Conservation of Nature Netherlands (IUCN NL) have released a review of private sector financing for conservation through REDD+ and biodiversity compensation schemes under no net loss commitments. The full publication and executive summary are available through Code REDD.
Important findings from the paper are as follows:
- Harmonizing existing REDD+ and biodiversity compensation schemes is technically feasible
- It is possible to structure integrated REDD+ and biodiversity projects such way that they satisfy the additionality criteria both in case of existing and new projects
- REDD+ and biodiversity compensation actions will inexorably be linked through scaling jurisdictional and national REDD+ frameworks
Code REDD and IUCN NL welcome comments and look forward to supporting discussions on pathways for aligning REDD+ and biodiversity compensation schemes.
