Piloting Multiple-Benefit Investment Packages through forest/landscape restoration and REDD+ in Rwanda for scaling up in Africa
As of: May 2018
Objective and activities
This project will bring local public and private sector players together to construct, test and promote innovative REDD+ investment “packages” through implementation of forest and landscape restoration, based on the integration of relevant REDD+ standards and the creation of favourable investment conditions. These packages will be designed to bring multiple social, economic and ecological benefits including but also beyond carbon, and be attractive to local and international private sector investors, with benefits for communities and national ownership.
