REDD+ results-based payments at the Green Climate Fund’s first Board meeting of 2017
Josefina Braña Varela, Senior Director of WWF Forest and Climate, organized a side event on REDD+ results-based payments at the Green Climate Fund’s first Board meeting of 2017.
The event was a collaboration between Josefina and Maggie Comstock, of Conservation International, and Dylan Murray, of The Nature Conservancy. It aimed to inform Board members and alternates about the results from the call for inputs to help operationalize REDD+ results-based payments under the Fund, and to create more knowledge about the role that forests and REDD+ can play in achieving the GCF’s climate goals.
During their sixteenth meeting (B.16), the Board approved eight new projects for a total of more than US $750 million in funding.
