The REDD feasibility study for Tetepare Island in the Western Province of the Solomon Islands assessed eligibility, potential revenues, benefits, costs, and constraints to implement a forest carbon project that reduces emissions caused by deforestation and forest degradation. Specific factors assessed were the likelihood that emissions from the forest would occur in the near future (additionality), legal aspects, potential carbon credits that would be accrued under a REDD project, and a cost/benefit analysis that compares revenue from REDD versus that from logging.
