Welcome to the Voluntary REDD+ Database
The Voluntary REDD+ Database (VRD) provides information on REDD+ financing, actions and results that has been reported to the REDD+ Partnership.
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.

How much financing has been reported for REDD+?
Total funding for REDD+ (2006 - 2017) by funder and recipient type, as reported by funders
This graph shows total financial contribution amounts for REDD+ arrangements between funder countries, REDD+ countries and institutions from 2006 to 2017, as reported by funders.
August 2012 update: the estimates for total REDD+ financing, as reported in the VRD, have recently changed significantly.
As part of ongoing efforts to address discrepancies and data quality issues in the database, the VRD Team has been in communication with countries and institutions to remove inconsistencies in reported data, including pre-2006 funding which predates REDD+ as a concept.
The result is an overall decrease in reported REDD+ financing as shown in the graph above.
What is the distribution of financing to REDD+ countries over time?
Total outgoing and domestic financial contributions to REDD+ countries over time (2006 - 2017), as reported by funders.
What is the regional distribution of financing to/from REDD+ countries?
Regional distribution of outgoing and domestic financial contributions to REDD+ countries, as reported by funders.
What types of actions are being undertaken in REDD+ arrangements?
The types of actions that are specified in arrangements, as reported by funders.
This is not a comprehensive list as actions have not been reported for all arrangements.
Arrangements can specify more than one action, so the total number of actions is greater than the number of arrangements.
The purpose of this graph is to demonstrate the types of actions being recorded in arrangements; it does not show how much finance is going to different action categories.
