New Focali Brief: Guyana-Norway REDD+ agreement - Payments based on performance - or politics?

Focali Brief 2013:04 by Sabine Henders and Madelene Ostwald

The second audit of Guyana’s progress under the Norway-Guyana REDD+ agreement was completed in December 2012. It found that seven out of ten verification indicators were not or only partially met. Nevertheless, the Norwegian government allocated additional funds of 45 million USD to Guyana due to “continued improvements”. Focali has written about the debated bilateral agreement between Norway and Guyana earlier (Focali Brief 2010:01 & 2011:01) and is now revisiting the process in this Brief.
