Participating in REDD (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation) could generate significant resource flows forÂ developing countries, but it also entails costs. Understanding these costs is critical if countries want to take full advantage of the opportunities that REDD offers.
The Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) in cooperation with the World Bank Institute (WBI), Partnership for Tropical Forest Margins (ASB) and the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) have developed a training manual providing guidance on how to estimate the opportunity costs of REDD. A series of workshops on this theme will also be offered.
