Acknowledging Ecuador’s REDD+ 2014 results - a total volume of 4,831,679 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2eq) in emissions reductions - for GCF results-based payments (RBP)

These results have been reported to the United Nations Framework on Climate Change Convention (UNFCCC) and have undergone technical assessment. They are now fully UNFCCC compliant. Ecuador will use the results-based payments to invest in additional activities that support the implementation of their national REDD+ action plan. This includes developing policies and institutional management for REDD+; transitioning to sustainable agricultural production systems; sustainable forest management, conservation and restoration; and managing a national REDD+ action plan.
