This is the third in a series of reports in which FERN and the Forest Peoples Programme (FPP) look at the World Bank’s Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF). This case study concludes that unless major changes are made in FCPF planning, design and validation of emissions reduction programmes,
The N’hambita Forest Carbon Offset Pilot Project, run by the company Envirotrade, and initially funded by European Commission (EC) money, has failed to deliver most of its climate change, development, financial and learning objectives. Envirotrade suggest that emissions have been offset against s
This is the third volume of case study reports from the Accra Caucus on Forests and Climate Change, reporting on the implementation of REDD+ in the following countries; Guyana, Nepal, Indonesia, Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
This update on Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) looks in detail at five countries in the Congo Basin: the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Republic of Congo, the Central African Republic, Cameroon and Gabon.
