SBSTA 42 - Which role for the private sector

At the margins of the 42nd session of the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) in Bonn, IIASA associate researcher Sabine Fuss was invited as a guest speaker at a side event called "Forest finance needs the public sector, private sector & communities to achieve its goals for REDD+".

Alongside representatives from the private sector as well as experts from the Global Canopy Programme , Sabine emphasized the potential effect of minimum price guarantees for carbon credits, which would support, not substitute private financing for forests.
