The GCF Knowledge Database provides an open, web-based source of information from individual GCF member states and provinces on current status and trends regarding land use and deforestation; forest carbon accounting efforts and methodologies; REDD implementation activities; and REDD related financial flows. The database will be updated on a regular basis as new information becomes available, and seeks to be fully transparent with respect to all sources of information.
