FSC side-event at COP18


A Joint side event by FSC, Gold Standard and Fairtrade at the UNFCCC CoP-18  was orgnized in Doha. At the side event the recently established exploratory partnership between FSC and The Gold Standard was joined by Fairtrade International who supports The Gold Standard’s envisaged expansion into climate-smart agriculture. The idea is to apply Fairtrade principles to benefit sharing of carbon finance, potentially including smallholder forestry projects.
