UNFCCC committee calls for papers on financing for forests

The Standing Committee on Finance (SCF) of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)  is looking for relevant information and case studies to feed into a working paper on coherence and coordination for financing for forests. Submission can include

a. Experience with use of resources/the transfer of payments in results-based approaches;

b. Experience with the provision of resources for alternative approaches such as payments for ecosystems services.

The collected information will be used to expand a background paper by the Committee to be used in the future work of the SCF on coherence and coordination for financing for forests and for its Forum in 2015.

The background paper comes with comprehensive tables of existing sourses of REDD+ and forests financing and “alludes to a level of fragmentation within forest finance, and the need for coherence and coordination, given the different activities and financial  flows that exist.” It also notes that “an agreed total figure on finance pledged or disbursed for REDD+ does not exist.”

Any relevant information can be sent to the SCF by 10 November 2014 (
