Why should land-use finance be mapped and analyzed? How can public and private spending contribute to achieving REDD+ objectives? What are the main financing gaps, opportunities and priorities? How can unsustainable finance be aligned with forest and climate objectives? How much money has been spent on reducing deforestation over time? How does one even get started? To find out, join Climate Policy Initiative and the EU REDD Facility for a webinar on the Land-use Finance Tool. The Tool can be used by tropical forest countries and their partners to quantitatively and qualitatively assess land-use investments’ contribution towards national climate objectives. The approach involves mapping and understanding existing public and private spending in land use, aligning existing and new investments with forest and climate objectives, and tracking changes over time. The following speakers will show how this approach was developed and has been applied in several countries: Adeline Dontenville – Land use and finance expert, EU REDD Facility Angela Falconer – Associate Director, Climate Policy Initiative Can’t wait until February 22 to learn more about the Land-use Finance Tool?
