Emergent is a nonprofit dedicated to accelerating the speed and scale of tropical forest conservation to combat the climate crisis.
Forests are crucial for life on earth. Protecting the world’s forests represents perhaps the greatest and most cost-effective opportunity to turn the corner on climate change over the next two decades. Nature-based solutions (NBS) have the potential to provide nearly one-third of the solution to climate change, yet NBS receive roughly 3 percent of international climate finance.
Emergent mobilizes large-scale finance for national and sub-national tropical forest and climate protection programs known as Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation, or REDD+.
Emergent connects buyers and sellers of large-scale emissions reductions from jurisdictional REDD+ programs, providing a reliable means of transacting large volumes of high-quality international forest carbon credits while helping to navigate market complexities and policy uncertainties.
