Project Title: ART
Forest conservation and restoration represents a gigaton-scale mitigation opportunity that could transform the fight to slow climate change. To attract large-scale finance for reducing global deforestation, a credible system is needed to reward countries for reduced emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+). ART aims to unlock new long-term financial flows for forest countries to protect and restore forests by providing a credible voluntary standard and rigorous process to transparently register, verify and issue REDD+ emissions reductions credits that embody the highest environmental and social integrity.
