· UNFCCC COP13/MOP3, December 2007

o The World Bank launches its new Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) without consultation of Indigenous Peoples and receives heavy criticism from civil society organizations, who organize a protest at its launch.

o The Bali Roadmap agrees that a RED/D scheme should be part of any post-2012 climate agreement, but does not agree what form such a scheme should take. However, the World Bank is invited to begin pilot projects, and its stated aim for the FCPF is to ‘jump-start a forest carbon market’.
