The BioCarbon Fund mobilises finance to reduce carbon emissions in forest and agricultural ecosystems. It will combine a technical assistance facility with a series of country-focused investment
windows to achieve this.
The Carbon Fund of the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility will make performance-based payments for carbon emissions reductions from forests and agriculture to REDD+ countries. The fund has a cut-off date of 2020 when it is envisaged that it will be replaced by a global agreement. It is designed to fund emissions reductions over a five year period, and it is likely that there will be about US$70 million available to buy emissions reductions directly in each REDD+ country.
