Background

"The BioCarbon Fund provides carbon finance for projects that sequester or conserve greenhouse gases in forests, agro- and other ecosystems. Through its focus on bio-carbon, or 'sinks', it delivers carbon finance to many developing countries that otherwise have few opportunities to participate in the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), or to countries with economies in transition through joint implementation (JI). The BioCarbon Fund tests and demonstrates how land use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF) activities can generate high-quality ERs with environmental and livelihood benefits that can be measured, monitored and certified, and stand the test of time.

The BioCarbon Fund is a public/private initiative established as a trust fund administered by the World Bank. The World Bank, as Trustee, oversees the BioCarbon Fund's management and appoints a Fund Manager and a Fund Management Unit. This unit is part of the World Bank's Carbon Finance Unit and draws on the World Bank's experience with carbon finance."
