This guideline consists of a set of concepts, guidelines and procedures useful for integrating the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Forest Management certification into the organization of REDD+ projects.

The guideline is divided into three main sections:

  • Section 1: provides background information on REDD+ projects and gives an overview of the FSC historical role in the forest-based carbon market;
  • Section 2: outlines the timeline of a REDD+ project comparing it with that of an FSC FM/CoC (Forest Management/Chain of Custody) certification;
  • Section 3: provides understanding, identification and management tools to overcome the constraints encountered in the organization of
    REDD+ projects.
