IETA & Verra co-host a webinar on The Future of Nested REDD+: The State of Play

On Tuesday, 17 November, 11 am – 12:30 pm, Verra will co-host a webinar on “The Future of Nested REDD+: The State of Play.” This webinar is part of the International Emissions Trading Association’s webinar series called “IETA Live: Carbon Market Virtual Series” and will explore expert perspectives about the evolution of Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) projects. Key finance and policy issues related to integrating project-level actions into larger scales will be a key focus. Practitioners from countries where nested REDD+ is being designed and implemented will share experiences of accounting and policy as well as measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) considerations. We’ll conclude with a discussion of how nested REDD+ mechanisms will need to be designed to play a part in truly safeguarding the world’s remaining forests.
