Offset National Emissions through Sustainable Landscapes (ONE-SL)
Funder: U.S. Department of State Bureau of Oceans and international Environmental and Scientific Affairs (OES)
Project Timeline: September 30, 2020 - September 30, 2024
As businesses strive to achieve a carbon neutral footprint and demand for carbon offsets increases, developing countries are seeking new ways to finance efforts to reduce emissions, including from forest land use. The Offset National Emissions through Sustainable Landscapes (ONE-SL) project aims to develop enhanced understanding and capacity for successful implementation of nested jurisdictional Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) programs among countries, project developers and commercial industry offset purchasers. ONE-SL supports countries in their ability to scale project-level REDD+ into jurisdictional REDD+ programs with the capacity to yield high quality offsets attracting private-sector commitment.
