After the recent signing of Ethiopia’s Emission Reductions Purchase Agreement (ERPA), the ISFL is entering a pivotal period with more ERPA signings expected in the coming year.
At the ISFL’s mid-year governance meetings in May, participants were updated on the progress in Colombia, Indonesia, Mexico and Zambia toward finalizing emission reductions programs and ERPA requirements, putting all four countries on track to sign ERPAs in the next fiscal year.
Meeting participants also learned more on the upcoming release of new ISFL knowledge products, including: two e-courses (available on the World Bank’s Open Learning Campus); a study on promoting biodiversity in integrated land-use and emission reductions initiatives; a guide for countries on the fundamentals of negotiating and agreeing ER program contracts with buyers; and a series of global workshops on private sector engagement and ER credit buying.
