The REDD+ mechanism is the most successful and largest voluntary emissions reduction program created to-date:

  • 10 countries have generated 9 billion tons of independently verified emission reductions. These results are posted to the UNFCCC REDD+ Info Hub

  • 50 countries have submitted a Forest Reference Level, which acts as the crediting baseline for calculating reductions and is a critical step in the process

  • The UNFCCC has completed 45 technical assessments of REDD+ Programs.
