ARLINGTON, VA — December 22, 2023 — The Secretariat of the Architecture for REDD+ Transactions (ART) is pleased to announce the TREES Concept for Burkina Faso's jurisdictional REDD+ program is now published on the ART Registry. The total number of jurisdictions listed with ART is now twenty.

The publishing 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.
