On 12 February 2019 (5:00PM - 6:00PM CET) Verra is hosting a webinar on "Introducing the Sustainable Development Verified Impact Standard".

Verra recently launched the Sustainable Development Verified Impact Standard (SD VISta for short), which will help drive finance to projects that demonstrate sustainable development benefits.

As the sustainable development community looks to raise an additional $2.5 trillion for the purpose of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the question of how this money can best drive real impact and transformation becomes ever more pressing. SD VISta is a flexible framework which sets out rules and criteria for projects to be designed, implemented and independently assessed so they credibly advance the SDGs. Once project have been certified in the SD VISta Program, their contributions to the SDGs are listed on our database.  Some projects may issue SD VISta assets: units representing sustainable development benefits that can be sold or retired and claimed. Donors and investors who seek to identify, support and help scale up the most effective efforts to achieve the SDGs can look to SD VISta-certified projects as ones that meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

A recording of the webinar will be available for those unable to attend.
