VCS Event: Bridging the REDD+ Gap from Projects to Programs
Please join us at Carbon Expo for a side event on government and private sector efforts to scale up to first-of-their-kind integrated jurisdictional REDD+ programs.
Jurisdictional REDD+ programs present a major opportunity for governments to dramatically increase the scope of forest conservation in a region, while simultaneously unlocking the economic power of carbon finance. This panel will discuss new examples of implementing integrated REDD+ programs with those who are on the front lines, featuring expert representatives from some of the private businesses, project developers and NGOs who helped develop theVCS Jurisdictional and Nested REDD+ Requirements.
The panel will focus specifically on how leading national and subnational jurisdictions, as well as forward-thinking project developers and funds, are collaborating on the development of jurisdictional REDD+ programs. These efforts include applying the VCS Jurisdictional REDD+ (JNR) Framework as well as the CARE/CCBA REDD+ Social & Environmental Standards to quantify carbon benefits of innovative forest practices while ensuring safeguards are enforced and multiple benefits are delivered.
