Details for Carbon Rights in REDD+ - Policy Note

Name:Carbon Rights in REDD+ - Policy Note

The definition of carbon rights is open to many different interpretations and is likely to vary between legal contexts. In the REDD+ debate, one interpretation is that carbon can be considered as a new form of property in forest ecosystems. It has potential value because of the creation of new markets and funds aimed at reducing carbon emissions or enhancing removals. This raises legal issues surrounding how rights to carbon as property, and the associated rights to transfer and trade carbon, are determined.

This policy note summarizes what carbon rights are, how they are relevant in REDD+ and the main implications that could arise for poor and vulnerable people.
