Green Climate Fund makes first REDD+ results-based payments to Brazil

It’s now been over 10 years since countries around the world started to work on the international policy framework known by reference as the acronym REDD+, which stands for ‘reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, conservation and sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks.’

Basically, REDD+ refers to a policy framework under the international Climate Change Convention designed to provide payments to developing countries for keeping their forests rather than logging them and converting them to plantations.
