Technical Report
The fundamental premise of the REDD+ programme is to offer result-based payments to participating countries. REDD+ countries can receive payments based on demonstrated results of reduced emissions against a reference emissions level and such payments may be deposited into a national REDD+ fund. These results based payments will accrue in future. In...
