BioCarbon Fund

Since its creation in 2004, the BioCarbon Fund has allocated resources to projects that transform landscapes and directly benefit poor farmers. It was the first carbon fund established in the world to focus on land use.

Housed within the Carbon Finance Unit of the World Bank, the BioCarbon Fund is a public-private sector initiative mobilizing financing to help develop projects that sequester or conserve carbon in forest and agro-ecosystems. It has been a pioneer in this sector, developing the infrastructure needed to pilot transactions and paving the way for the growing land-use carbon market established to date.

For more information about the BioCarbon Fund T1 and T2, download the BioCarbon Fund brochure (PDF). If you are interested in information about the new BioCarbon Fund Initiative for Sustainable Forest Landscapes (ISFL), please visit
