This report identifies the sources of funding currently available for REDD+ and climate action in forests, and analyzes the challenges and opportunities for accessing and coordinating this finance.

This report presents the mapping results of national and international REDD+ financial flows to Brazil from 2009 through 2016, and contains detailed analyses regarding new sources of finance flows that may impact REDD+ goals, including financial commitments to promote low-carbon agriculture and subnational case studies of the states of Amazonas

In an effort to better understand continent-wide patterns of REDD+ finance, this study has built off of the initial five years of the work of Forest Trends’ REDDX initiative through focused stakeholder meetings, distribution of questionnaires, and review of literature and available documents to synthesize the main trends and understand the lesso
