Financial incentive benchmark for REDD+

Arild Angelsen, Professor of Economics at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (UMB) and a senior associate at CIFOR, gave this presentation on 28 November 2012 at a joint CIFOR and GOFC-GOLD (Global Observation of Forest Cover and Land Dynamics) UNFCCC COP18 side-event in Doha, Qatar. The presentation discusses relevant considerations for how to set the financial incentive benchmark (or crediting) baseline for REDD+, i.e. the benchmark for rewarding a project or country for reduced emissions. While this is ultimately a political question to be handled through negotiations, these can be done in a more systematic way, as shown in this presentation.
