But according to Mario Boccucci, head of the UN-REDD Programme Secretariat, "The current level of public-sector donor pledging to forest systems and REDD+ is unprecedented.
Germany, United Kingdom, and Norway have pledged $5 billion USD for the period 2016 through 2020. He said REDD+ is taking off now after a challenging few years of development. When commenting on the ODI report, Boccucci said, "The current level of public-sector donor pledging to forest systems and REDD+ is unprecedented. "We are really at a juncture that has been built over time," Boccucci said. "It is widely acknowledged that agriculture is one of the biggest drivers of deforestation," Boccucci said. "We are now at a point where we are turning our attention and energy and intervention to moving on from the preparatory phase and getting into implementation," Boccucci said. "In the past 10 years, there has been an increasingly significant level of investment in capacity building, policy dialogue, and developing a regulatory framework for REDD+ - to the point where the Paris Agreement has in its Article 5 a significant recognition of forest contribution." Article 5 of the Paris Agreement encourages forest conservation through results-based payments. UNFCCC has also developed a set of guidance, the Warsaw Framework. "There's an increasing critical mass of champions - agents of change - over a larger number of countries and civil society," Boccucci said.
