The Voluntary REDD+ Database (VRD) provides information on REDD+ financing, actions and results. It aims to improve effectiveness, efficiency, transparency and coordination of REDD+ initiatives; and to support efforts to identify and analyze gaps and overlaps in REDD+ financing. The Database relies solely on data voluntarily submitted by countries and institutions. The statistics, maps, graphs and lists of arrangements on this site may be viewed as "reported by funders" or "reported by recipients", through the drop down in the upper right hand side of this page. Data may also be viewed for individual countries and institutions, by following the links in the top right hand side of this page or by clicking on individual countries in the map above. For more details on how to use the VRD to answer your REDD+ financing questions, please click on the user guide link below.

Reporting a total of 2119 REDD+ arrangements

The arrangements in this database have been reported by countries and institutions providing and/or receiving REDD+ finance. The VRD provides guidance to those reporting on the types of REDD+ arrangements they may wish to include in the database. However, the reporting party ultimately retains the responsibility for what it reports as REDD+ arrangements, including what “counts” as REDD+ related finance. For more information, please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions section of the site.

How much financing has been reported for REDD+?

Total funding for REDD+ (2006 - 2019) by funder and recipient type, as reported by funders.

This graph shows total financial commitments amounts for REDD+ arrangements between funder countries, recipient countries and institutions from 2006 to 2019, as reported by funders.

What is the distribution of financing to recipient countries over time?

Total outgoing and domestic financial commitments to recipient countries over time (2006 - 2019), as reported by funders.

What is the regional distribution of financing to/from recipient countries?

Regional distribution of outgoing and domestic financial commitments to REDD+ countries, as reported by funders.

What types of activities are being undertaken in REDD+ arrangements?

The types of activities that are specified in arrangements, as reported by funders. This is not a comprehensive list as activities have not been reported for all arrangements (presently, 1,063 out of 1,608 arrangements reported by funders include information about activities to be undertaken). Arrangements can specify more than one activities, so the total number of activities is greater than the number of arrangements. The purpose of this graph is to demonstrate the types of activities being recorded in arrangements; it does not show how much finance is going to different activity categories.
