Why should land-use finance be mapped and analyzed? How can public and private spending contribute to achieving REDD+ objectives? What are the main financing gaps, opportunities and priorities? How can unsustainable finance be aligned with forest and climate objectives? How much money has been spent on reducing deforestation over time? How does one even get started?
To find out, watch this Climate Policy Initiative and EU REDD Facility webinar on the Land-use Finance Tool. The Tool can be used by tropical forest countries and their partners to quantitatively and qualitatively assess land-use investments’ contribution towards national climate objectives. The approach involves mapping and understanding existing public and private spending in land use, aligning existing and new investments with forest and climate objectives, and tracking changes over time.
