Partnerships for Forests catalyses investments in which the private sector, public sector and communities can achieve shared value from sustainable forests and sustainable land use.
By creating market-ready ‘Forest Partnerships’ that offer an attractive balance of risks and benefits for the private sector, public sector and communities, the programme aims to mobilise significant investment, principally from the private sector.
The programme also supports demand side measures that strengthen demand for sustainable commodities, and activities to create the right enabling conditions for sustainable investment.
The five-year programme is funded by the UK Department for International Development and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). It currently operates in Central, East and West Africa, South East Asia and Latin America.
