  4. 4. An interim REDD+ partnership can provide the framework for early action and 7 Gt of cumulative reductions already by 2015 ▪ REDD+ has >30% of global abatement potential in 2020 Why? ▪ 7 Gt of cumulative reductions can be achieved by 2015 ▪ Delaying action until 2015 would cost 16 Gt by 2020 How? ▪ Core: Payments for reduced emissions (~90%) ▪ Enabling: Grants for readiness (~10%) ▪ Financial contributions from developed countries: EUR 15– Funding 25 billion 2010–2015 ▪ Flow channels: Bilateral supported by multilateral fund(s) ▪ Largely build on existing institutional structure Institutions ▪ Minimum level of new architecture proposed to fill any gaps ▪ Ensure consistency of standards The Norwegian Climate and Forest Initiative |
  5. 5. Early action is critical to achieve emission reduction from REDD+ at scale in 2020 Emission reduction potential as function of REDD+ action 2010-2020 Importance of early action GtCO2e per year reductions ▪ Kick starting REDD+ in 2010 can yield 7 Gt of cumulative emission reductions by 2015 5 Start in ▪ REDD+ cannot deliver ~4 Gt in 2020 without 2010 23 Gt action now 4 – Learning at scale is needed – Incentives a scale is required to achieve actual emission reductions 3 ▪ Significant political lock-in risks if action is Start in delayed 2 7 Gt 2015 ▪ REDD+ early action strengthens trust building between parties to benefit the 1 7 Gt by process of developed countries committing 2015 to pay for reduced emission in developing 0 countries 2010 15 2020 ▪ Early action on REDD+ could also facilitate Assuming a reduction in global deforestation an additional ~2 Gt of emission reduction in rates of 25% over first 5 years of action, then A/R by 2020 ramping up to full emission reduction potential for following 5 years SOURCE: IWG IFR Secretariat The Norwegian Climate and Forest Initiative | 4
