"Combatting tropical deforestation: the REDD+ initiative"

Excerpt"

EU financing for REDD+

"The EU's approach to REDD+ builds on its Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) Action Plan as well as international initiatives such as the REDD+ Partnershipthe Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) the EU REDD Facility, and the UN-REDD programme.

 

The European Commission commits approximately €25 million a year to initiatives piloting REDD+ in Asia, Africa and Latin America. The Commission is investigating ways to stimulate private sector investment in addressing the drivers of deforestation and further increase the effectiveness and efficiency of REDD+ financing."
