This workshop was organized in the framework of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) led initiative on “Financial and institutional risk mitigation and management strategies”. This initiative stems from the lack of significant funding for the forest sector in key areas of intervention such as forest plantations, natural forest management, small and medium forest enterprises, local and community forestry, and large‐scale forest investment projects including REDD+, while private capital is available for investments. Underlying efficient business models can bring substantial financial returns to investors in all these activities, but many traditional investors are still reluctant to invest.
