This event will spotlight Guyana’s national REDD+ program, one of the first countries to issue jurisdictional REDD+ credits under the ART TREES standard. As a High Forest Low Deforestation (HFLD) country with over 80 percent forest cover, Guyana will finance its vision for low carbon sustainable development through the sale of TREES-verified HFLD credits. We will feature stakeholders from Guyana, private sector and others that are partnering to deliver access to carbon markets at scale for these critical places for the first time.
