Environmental services incentive system in the State of Acre, Brazil
This study analyses the design of the Environmental Services Incentives System (SISA, for the Portuguese acronym). It is linked to the REDD+ programme for the State of Acre, Brazil. Known as Environmental Services Incentives for Carbon, this programme represents one of the first public policies for REDD+ and is among the most advanced jurisdiction-wide REDD+ mechanism in the world. Through the Sinal Verde project, the Acre Institute of Climate Change and Environmental Services Regulation (IMC) have explored options for ways that community-based forest monitoring could measure the success of the SISA programme.
