The plan comes as nations across the world’s tropical forest belt, from Colombia to Indonesia, look to monetize their extensive tree cover while at the same time protecting it. Each credit represents a ton of carbon dioxide emissions removed from, or not added to, the atmosphere.

Honduras plans to sell securities based on the emissions its forests absorb and has already submitted to the mechanism. It will start a review in January, aiming to submit at least 5.5 million more to REDD+. The idea is to turn these into carbon credits, said @malcolmstufkens.
