CEADIR Series: Financing Innovations in Sustainable Landscapes

This CEADIR discussion explores financial innovations for funding sustainable land use activities, such as forestry and agriculture, that can both mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and help countries develop resilience to varying future climate conditions.
 
Featured speakers include J.P. Gibbons (USAID, Economic Growth, Education, and Environment Bureau), Bob O’Sullivan (Winrock International), and Dr. Gordon Smith (CEADIR project), with Dr. Eric Hyman (USAID, Economic Growth, Education, and Environment Bureau) as moderator.
 
Dr. Hyman introduced USAID’s sustainable landscapes programming and the financing efforts needed to support such initiatives. Mr. Gibbons provided an overview of financial instrument options relevant to scaling up land use activities and policies that mitigate climate change. Mr. O’Sullivan reported on prospects for reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) credits (supply and demand), and opportunities to extend beyond the project-scale to larger, jurisdictional-scale REDD+ programs. Dr. Smith provided a project developer’s view on the economic issues of mitigating greenhouse gas emissions from land use.
