ID-RECCO stands for “International Database on REDD+ projects and programs: Linking Economics, Carbon and Community”.

ID-RECCO is a database that was established in 2014 through a collaborative project by CIFOR (Bogor, Indonesia), Climate Economics Chair at Paris-Dauphine University, Paris, France), CIRAD (Montpellier, France) and IFRI at the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, United States). Since 2018, it is hosted and maintained by CIFOR.

ID-RECCO was developed to improve knowledge on REDD+ projects and jurisdictional programs by gathering publicly available data on REDD+ projects. We hope it will be particularly useful for researchers who work on REDD+ issues, project proponents, potential REDD+ investors, civil society organizations and governments. Information is organized for research and public use.

ID-RECCO identifies and characterizes REDD+ projects and programs across 110 variables on several aspects of REDD+ projects: carbon certification, sources of financing, community-level interventions project proponents and general features of the project.

This database is the largest global data base of REDD+ project in the sense that it contains such a large and detailed amount of information is on REDD+ projects globally. REDD+ actions at different scales.

When it was first developed in October 2014, IDRECCO identified 410 projects, 57 countries and 362 project proponents. Since then, we have been adding on new projects and updating the status of existing projects. The database was updated in 2016, 2018 and 2020. As of December 2020, the ID-RECCO database contains 624 projects/programs (467 in the 2018 update). Of this, 416 are active.

It is a work in progress, so any constructive input, suggestions, and corrections are welcome. Please contact us.
