Colombia REDD+ Results-based Payments for results period 2015-2016

Colombia REDD+ Results-based Payments for results period 2015-2016

This project recognises Colombia's REDD+ results for 2015-2016 where a total volume of 6.95 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (MtCO₂eq) was presented to the GCF for results-based payments (RBP). The presented results were analysed against the GCF requirements and resulted in a final volume of emission reductions of 5.5 MtCO₂eq. Colombia will use the proceeds from RBP provided under this project to invest in additional activities that support the implementation of its Integrated Strategy of Deforestation Control and Forest Management (EICDGB). This will strengthen national and local capacities monitor and control deforestation. The project will also contribute to the sustainable management of forest areas, as well as strengthening the territorial governance and capacities of indigenous peoples to manage and preserve forests.
