- The country begins the search for a consulting entity to carry out the first measurements, thanks to an initiative led by UNDP and the REDD+ Secretariat.
- Until now, the carbon absorbed by trees has been accounted for, but soil carbon could double these figures and open the door to more climate financing resources.

Preserving mangrove ecosystems is key to mitigate climate change: Our latest photo story explores Indonesia's commitment to its Nationally Determined Contributions through the lens of mangrove rehabilitation in Sedari, West Java.
The Brazilian Amazon rainforest ranks among the most biodiverse ecosystems on Earth – with massive carbon sinks stocked in trees and soils, it plays a pivotal role in maintaining global climate stability. To unlock climate finance, states of the Brazilian Amazon are showing great interest to tap into carbon markets. Commercializing high-integrity jurisdictional REDD+ carbon credits can provide much-needed finance to implement forest conservation policies.
Africa is actively exploring the opportunities presented by carbon markets to address substantial gaps in climate finance.
