Design options for a forest carbon legal framework for Lao PDR: Drawing lessons from across the globe

This study looks at the possible design options that could form the basis of a legal framework for carrying out forest carbon activities and investments in Laos by both public and private sector actors. It provides an overview of the features of forest carbon schemes across the globe and examines Laotian forest-related legislation and implementation. It then suggests possible REDD+ options for Laos consistent with and building on both current Laotian policies and international thinking. Items investigated include scope and eligibility requirements, linking sub-national activities to national level accounting, institutional arrangements, MRV systems, and carbon registries.
