The Secretariat of the Architecture for REDD+ Transactions (ART) is pleased to announce the approval of TREES Concepts for five jurisdictional programs. The documents are posted publicly on the ART Registry.

The approval of the TREES Concept is the first step to register a jurisdictional REDD+ program under ART. Once TREES Registration documents have been submitted and the results independently verified by an accredited verification body, the ART Board may approve the issuance of serialized TREES credits to the participating jurisdiction.

The ART Secretariat anticipates the issuance of the first TREES credits in late 2021 to early 2022.
