Incubator Scoping Study Workshop on REDD project types

Event Overview

Incubator Scoping Study Workshop on REDD project types

July 02, 2009 - July 03, 2009

Accra, Ghana
Crystal Palm Hotel

The aim of this Incubator Scoping study is to promote a systematic REDD project selection process that enables Ghana to develop a balanced and strong portfolio of projects that responds to strategic priorities, and in which the likelihood of project success is maximized from an early stage. A second aim is to identify key legal, policy and institutional gaps in the development of viable carbon credits; this analysis will feed into national level discussions of how to develop a facilitating policy framework for REDD (and other types of carbon finance). A third is to promote national capacity in the assessment of potential REDD projects. It is expected that this exercise can make a significant contribution to national REDD strategy development, and should complement the World Bank Forest Carbon Partnership Facility Readiness Plan (R-Plan) process. This exercise would be undertaken in close coordination with the National REDD Steering Committee, and is being funded by the USAID and Moore Foundation.
