The BioCFplus Technical Assistance (TA) and Capacity Building Trust Fund is funded by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) - now part of the Department of Global Affairs, Canada. In its early days, BioCFplus typically focused on capacity building for project development, development of the first methodologies and tools for carbon accounting of afforestation/reforestation projects, and disseminating lessons learned regarding the pioneering role of the BioCarbon Fund and to highlight the development benefits of carbon sequestration projects. Moving beyond forest, the Fund now has a broader work program to include a focus on carbon methodology development for the agriculture and livestock sector, and on capacity building for UNFCCC negotiators and others.
The following sets of activities are funded through BioCFplus:
- Project Capacity Building and Monitoring Support
- UNFCCC Negotiations and other meetings, and Regular Outreach
- Knowledge Management
- Methodology Development
- Assisting Developing Countries in Carbon Asset Creation
