2019 Goal 9 assessment

Published: November 1, 2019

Key Messages

  • Nearly USD 4.7 billion of results-based finance for verified carbon emissions reductions has been committed by bilateral or multilateral sources.
  • As of April 2019, payments of about one third (35 percent) of these commitments have been disbursed or announced — mostly by Norway to Brazil.
  • Three countries – the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mozambique, and Ghana — have signed Emission Reductions Payment Agreements (ERPAs) under the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) Carbon Fund.
  • Discussions around forest carbon markets are regaining momentum; however, it is unclear what role they will play in supporting efforts to reduce deforestation and protect forests.
