A critical time for investment in REDD+ landscape programmes to scale up

This talk will engage candidly with challenges faced by REDD+ and the importance of scaling up resources at a critical time for the organization.  By connecting with new and diverse audiences, REDD+ aspires to construct a movement capable of acting as a drive-train for new investment and policy initiatives.  The session will argue that the practices of financial accounting can establish a foundation of investor confidence in the immediate and longer term impact of REDD+.  Calling on the broad base of stakeholders present at the GLF, the talk is only one part of an effort undertaken across the GLF to gauge support and receive feedback on a paper published by PwC and the Climate Development Knowledge Network on REDD+’s future.
