The Conference of the Parties (COP), in its decision 1/CP.18, decided to undertake a work
programme on results-based finance in 2013, including two workshops, to progress the full implementation of
the activities referred to in decision 1/CP.16, paragraph 70. It decided
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 first workshop on “Results-based
finance to progress the full implementation of the activities referred to in decision 1/CP.16, paragraph 70
(REDD-plus)” was held on 10 June 2013 in conjunction with the thirty-eighth sessions of the
Subsidiary Bodies in Bonn, Germany.
The work programme addresses options to achieve its 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.
The discussions and the outcome from the second workshop in August will facilitate the co-chairs’
preparation of the report on the workshops for the consideration of the COP at its nineteenth session with a
view to the COP adopting a decision on this matter. The COP decided that the work programme shall end by this
session of the COP unless it decided otherwise.
The working language of the workshop will be English.
