This report describes the outcomes of a scoping exercise and study led by the Katoomba Ecosystem Services Incubator. The aims of this exercise were to (a) identify a portfolio of promising REDD projects that can assist communities to access PES markets/funds, (b) provide input into government REDD “readiness” and priority-setting processes, and (c) generate recommendations in terms of the legal, policy and institutional actions or reforms necessary to stimulate forest carbon finance in Uganda. Reforms necessary for equitable sharing of carbon credits with participating local stakeholders are also critically explored.
