Partnerships for Forests supports investment models in which the private sector, public sector and communities can achieve shared value from forests and sustainable land use.
About Partnerships for Forests
The failure of markets to attach a value to the social and environmental benefits that forests provide means that sustainable investments can be hard to realise. Partnerships for Forests aims to demonstrate how the private sector, public sector and communities can come together to generate shared value from forests and sustainable land use.
What We Do
The programme’s main focus is supporting the development of Forest Partnerships. These are partnerships between private sector companies, public sector actors and communities that catalyse investment in forests and sustainable land use. The programme also supports activities that strengthen demand for sustainable commodities and activities to create an enabling environment for sustainable investments.
People & Partners
The Partnerships for Forests team offers a unique mix of experience and skills in private participation in forestry and sustainable land-use. Senior programme managers and technical experts work alongside a pool of specialists to deliver our vision and provide world-class expertise and convening power in global commodity supply chains and intimate knowledge of the drivers of deforestation.
