The Impacts of International REDD+ Finance

The Impacts of International REDD+ Finance

As a tropical and biologically megadiverse country with improving socioeconomic conditions, Colombia has become attractive for REDD+ investments. Furthermore, during the past five years, Colombia has been promoting itself as committed to sustainable development, and this has had a positive impact in the acquisition of new international public funding. Under the UNFCCC, Colombia has been an active player on REDD+ negotiations and has invested significant effort to be seen as a trusted partner and “good global green citizen”.

As we look towards the upcoming Paris COP (COP21), this case study provides a timely discussion of current climate finance policies involving forests.

The full report, 'The Impact of International REDD+ Finance', by Donna Lee and Till Pistorius, which seeks to identify the impacts of committed funding in developing countries, can be assessed from the Climate and Land Use Alliance website
