SUBMISSION BY THE REDD+ SAFEGUARDS WORKING GROUP, THE ACCRA CAUCUS, AND MEMBERS OF THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLES’ CAUCUS ON THE METHODOLOGICAL ISSUES RELATED TO NON-CARBON BENEFITS RESULTING FROM THE IMPLEMENTATION OF REDD+ ACTIVITIES

Parties now acknowledge that NCBs are a critical part of REDD+ activities and are “crucially important for the long-term viability and sustainability of REDD+ implementation.”[1] At COP 19 in Warsaw, Parties recognized “the importance of incentivizing non-carbon benefits for the long-term sustainability of the implementation of [REDD+] activities.”[2] The importance of NCBs is also highlighted by other REDD+ initiatives, such as the UN-REDD Programme and the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF), and by UN bodies such as the Convention of Biological Diversity (CBD).
