The International Database on REDD+ Projects and Programs: Linking Economics, Carbon and Communities (ID-RECCO), is the largest global data base of REDD+ projects and programs.

It was established in 2014 through a collaborative effort by CIFOR, Climate Economics Chair at Paris-Dauphine University, CIRAD and IFRI at the University of Michigan with a mission to improve knowledge on REDD+ projects and jurisdictional programs by gathering publicly available data into one place. Since 2018, the database has been hosted and maintained by CIFOR-ICRAF.

Beginning with 410 projects across 57 countries in 2014, ID-RECCO has been regularly updated and expanded.

As of October 2022, the ID-RECCO database contains 710 projects of which 359 are active. We also made a separate, more comprehensive table for 29 (active) jurisdictional programs, totaling 739.

Each new project that is added to the ID-RECCO database is characterized across 136 variables for projects and 101 variables for programs including carbon certification status, sources of financing, community-level interventions, and general features of the project.

We hope the database will be particularly useful for researchers who work on REDD+ issues, as well as project proponents, potential investors, civil society organizations and governments.

Notably, ID-RECCO is a work in progress, so any constructive input, suggestions, and corrections are most welcome! Contact us to get involved.
