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 high quality standards of climate protection projects in countries of the Global South, as well as for identifying new trends and innovative approaches to financing climate protection projects in the context of sustainable development.
