that the aim of the work programme is to contribute to the ongoing efforts to scale up and improve the
effectiveness of finance for the activities referred to in decision 1/CP.16, paragraph 70 (hereinafter
referred to as REDD-plus), taking into account decision 2/CP.17, paragraphs 66 and 67.
The work programme addresses options to achieve this objective, taking into account a wide variety of sources
as referred to in decision 2/CP.17, paragraph 65, including:
• Ways and means to transfer payments for results-based actions;
• Ways to incentivize non-carbon benefits;
• Ways to improve the coordination of results-based finance.
