REDD+ is the international model to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation. The program also focuses at conservation, sustainable management of forests and enhancing forest carbon stocks.


Suriname adopted the REDD+ program in 2012 and is currently in its Readiness Phase. Projects for capacity building, data collection and background studies are underway in preparation for future REDD+ projects.

The Forest Carbon Partnership Facility

The Forest Carbon Partnership Facility is a global partnership of governments, businesses, civil society, and Indigenous Peoples
focused on reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, forest carbon stock conservation, the sustainable management of forests,
and the enhancement of forest carbon stocks in developing countries. Better known as REDD+.

Through its Readiness Fund the FCPF helps REDD+ Country Participants, like Suriname, in their REDD+ efforts by providing them
with financial and technical assistance in building their capacity to benefit from possible future systems of positive incentives for REDD+.

From 2014-2018 Suriname will execute activities in the Readiness Phase.
In the timeline you'll see what activities were performed or are expected
in each phase of the REDD+ program for Suriname, as agreed upon in the Project Document.
