CCB Standard to Evaluate Land-based Carbon Mitigation Projects


If Project Developers need new investments from multiple funders and supporters, they could used The Climate, Community and Biodiversity Project Design Standards (CCB Standards) to develop projects that deliver a suite of environmental and community benefits.

The CCB Standards evaluate land-based carbon mitigation projects in the early stages of development. The Standards foster the integration of best-practice and multiple-benefit approaches into project design and evolution:

1. Identify projects that simultaneously address climate change, support local communities and conserve biodiversity.
2. Promote excellence and innovation in project design.
3. Mitigate risk for investors and increase funding opportunities for project developers.

The Climate, Community and Biodiversity Standards will be beneficial to a wide variety of users:

  • Project Developers can use the CCB Standards to develop projects that meet the Standards may garner new investments from multiple funders and supporters.


  • Project Investors can use the CCB Standards to identify exceptional initiatives and minimize risks.


  • Governments hosting projects can use the Standards to ensure that projects contribute to national sustainable development goals. Donor governments can use the Standards to pinpoint official development aid projects that satisfy multiple international obligations, such as the Millennium Development Goals and the UN conventions on Climate Change and Biological Diversity.

  • CCBA, the Independent Advising Institutions, made up the standard based on public comments and field-testing. Go to download: CCB Standars
