Detailed expertise: our studies

The Foundation Development and Climate Alliance prepares and commissions studies to monitor and help shape the voluntary offset market, the development and climate policy framework, and trends in development and climate finance.

Among other things, the studies serve as a basis for establishing criteria to ensure highquality standards of offset projects, as well as for identifying new trends and innovative approaches to financing climate protection projects in the context of sustainable development.

If you have any questions about our studies, please feel free to contact our Research & Consulting team.
