Immediate action is needed to stimulate demand for REDD+ emission reductions. There is currently no source of demand that will pay for medium to long-term emission reductions from REDD+ in the period between 2015 and 2020 (‘the interim period’), and do so at the scale needed to meet REDD+ emissions reduction targets in tropical forest countries.
The report 'Stimulating Interim Demand for REDD+ Emission Reductions: The Need for a Strategic Intervention from 2015 to 2020', produced by Global Canopy Programme in collaboration with the Amazon Environmental Research Institute, Fauna & Flora International, and UNEP Finance Initiative, reveals that demand for REDD+ emission reductions could be as little as 3% of the supply between 2015 and 2020. The report explains the risks of doing nothing, and outlines a suite of options for increasing demand.
