Social and Biodiversity Impact Assessment (SBIA) Manual for REDD+ Projects

A manual created by the Climate, Community and Biodiversity Alliance (CCBA), Forest Trends, Fauna & Flora International (FFI), and the Rainforest Alliance that aims to provide user-friendly guidance on how to conduct cost-effective and credible social and biodiversity impact assessment. The manual addresses the necessity of integrating co-benefits into the design and monitoring systems for land based carbon offset projects.  It will be relevant for proponents and developers of a wide range of site-level land-based carbon activities designed for the compliance or voluntary markets.
