Results-based Finance for REDD+: Emerging Approaches

Results-based Finance for REDD+: Emerging Approaches

Results-based finance (RBF) for REDD+ is an innovative approach towards development assistance that conditions payments on emission reductions from forests. Rather than financing specific actions that lead to emission reductions, e.g. measures to protect forests, RBF provides an ex-post reward and therefore incentivizes a REDD+ country to take these actions. 

This brief aims to shed light on the current landscape of results-based REDD+ finance, providing an overview of concepts, rationales and key features, and discusses challenges of climate change policy from the perspectives of recipient and donor countries.
