Recommendation for Doha: Results-based payments, non-carbon benefits, and links to the Convention on Biological Diversity

Results-based payments for REDD+ should include payments for other environmental and social benefits and governance outcomes as well as carbon benefits. It would be premature in Doha to define “results” of REDD+ in terms of carbon only given the diverging views that exist. A more in-depth discussion of broader results is needed. We believe it is more useful for SBSTA to explore this issue further and examine the advantages and disadvantages of different options for results-based payments (carbon and non-carbon).
