In the Field

State of the Forest Carbon Markets 2009

Ecosystem Marketplace spent the past year speaking with more than 100 market participants – 65 of whom develop forest protection and restoration projects, primarily in rainforest nations, and 37 of whom act as intermediaries.  These participants accounted for 230 projects generating credits across 40 countries over the past 20 years.

The result is State of the Forest Carbon Markets 2009: Taking Root & Branching Out, which is being released with support from the World Bank BioCarbon Fund, Biological Capital, Ecosystem Restoration Associates, and Baker McKenzie, as well as funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation, the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development and the Surdna Foundation.
