The Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) is assisting developing countries in their efforts to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, and to conserve, manage sustainably and enhance forest carbon stocks (a set of activities known as ‘REDD+’). The fundamental idea is to provide more value to forests standing than converted to other uses. The FCPF was announced at CoP13 in Bali in December 2007 and became operational in June 2008.

The FCPF’s initial activities relate to technical assistance and capacity building for REDD (or REDD+?) in IBRD and IDA member countries in the tropics across Africa, East Asia and Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean and South Asia. Specifically, the FCPF helps countries work out their national reference scenarios for land-use change and emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, adopt and complement national strategies for stemming deforestation and forest degradation, and design national measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) systems for REDD. These activities are referred to as ‘REDD+ Readiness’ and supported by the Readiness Fund of the FCPF.
