Framework for a green economy

Direct REDD+ finance in the framework of a green economy: Carbon sequestration by forest ecosystems is one of the many globally significant values negatively impacted by deforestation and forest degradation. The global community needs to support the development of economies that recognize the true value of forests, not only to support climate mitigation and biodiversity conservation but also for the range of resources, ecosystem goods and services that forests provide. Placing REDD+ within the framework of a green economy is essential in order to ensure its success.
