The work-stream on REDD+ and Sustainable Land Use focuses on helping to ensure that land resources, globally but particularly in forested developing countries, are used in a way that simultaneously: (i) enables sustainable agricultural and economic development locally and globally (ii) ensures the health and stability of forest and other ecosystems and the continued provision of their services at the required scale, and (iii) reduces greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation and forest degradation to levels in line with the 2 degrees target.

UNEP FI’s work on REDD+ and Sustainable Land Use supports financial institutions, governments, the international community and other stakeholders in making progress towards the above vision through a programme of work targeted at – and in partnership with – financial markets and the investment community, locally and globally.
