This fund will mobilise finance to reduce carbon emissions in forest and agricultural ecosystems. DECC has invested £50m to support investments in a number of country programmes, which are currently being developed and agreed. The Fund will 1) provide technical assistance for REDD+ implementation and measures which improve the enabling environment for private sector investment; 2) offer finance for Verified Emission Reductions associated with avoided deforestation; and 3) secure private sector finance, for example through purchasing commitments for sustainable commodities produced in the jurisdiction (sometimes called ‘offtaker agreements’). 1. Each country programme under the BioCarbon Fund will operate at the jurisdiction-scale, that is within a landscape-wide area that is governed by a single political jurisdiction. Activities that are likely to be supported include small scale plantation farming, sustainable forest management, afforestation and reforestation, regeneration, National Park designation / no-deforestation zoning, agroforestry and sustainable agricultural practices. ;
