Validation and Verification

ecoPartners has developed a track record of successfully partnering with project proponents to successfully achieve validation and verification for REDD projects around the world. Our experience creating a VCS-approved REDD methodology qualifies ecoPartners as experts in project development, enabling us to help clients dramatically lower the costs and risks of project development.


ecoPartners has worked with project developers to spearhead some of the first successful REDD projects in the world. ecoPartners helped develop a methodology for and develop the first successful REDD project on the African continent, and works with clients around the world on other REDD projects. In addition to our experience in project and methodology development, we have extensive experience in feasibility studies for REDD project development in Africa, South America, Central America and Asia.
