New York Climate Week: Achieving scale: How can the VCM support countries to achieve ambitious climate action through REDD+ and meet sustainable development goals

Pershing Hub, 101 Park Ave, New York, New York

September 19, 2023 | 1:30 – 3:30 PM EST


Location: Pershing Hub at the Nature Positive Hub

Convener(s): Wildlife Conservation Society

This event will explore how countries can meet requirements to enter the voluntary carbon market, including new methodological approaches for project-scale REDD+ and emerging consensus on high integrity crediting, in order to leverage carbon finance to meet a range of ambitious low-carbon development goals.

Representatives at the forefront of this transition to large-scale REDD+ systems will reflect on their experiences evolving from REDD+ readiness to operationalizing programs that can secure premium pricing for high quality forest carbon credits in global carbon markets.
