A brief explainer of how REDD+ finance works
- Published on
In one of largest ongoing efforts to tackle climate change, projects happening the world under the framework of REDD+ – reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation – are shoring up invaluable benefits for the planet’s collective future.

In the run-up to the Global Landscapes Forum Investment Case Symposium on 30 May – a high-level summit focused on sustainable investment – we spoke with CIFOR scientist Stibniati Atmadja, who’s worked with a team on groundbreaking, soon-to-be-published research about the current state of REDD+ finance.
