Climate, Community and Biodiversity Project Design Standards (First Edition)

Abstract : These Climate, Community and Biodiversity Project Design Standards (the " CCB Standards ") identify land-based projects that can simultaneously deliver compelling climate, biodiversity and community benefits. The CCB Standards are primarily designed for climate change mitigation projects. The CCB Standards were developed by the Climate, Community & Biodiversity Alliance (CCBA). The CCBA is a global partnership of research institutions, corporations and environmental groups, with a mission to develop and promote voluntary standards for multiple-benefit land-use projects. For more information about the CCBA, please visit or contact This first edition of the CCB Standards represents the culmination of two years of research and a broad, international stakeholder process. Community groups, NGOs, companies, academics, project developers and others provided comments, critiques, and suggestions during the two-years. In addition, field-tests from Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas shaped the CCB Standards considerably. A review team considered all comments and field-tests to create the first edition. The review team included the authors and three advising institutions: Tropical Agricultural Research and Higher Education Center (CATIE), the World Agroforestry Center (ICRAF) and the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR).
