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.
We are an incubator; through grant support and technical assistance, we develop partnerships between the private sector, the public sector and communities that generate the same, or better, returns from forests and sustainable land use as from unsustainable practices.
Our portfolio consists primarily of Forest Partnerships which currently span three hotspot regions for tropical deforestation – West and Central Africa, East Africa, and Southeast Asia. These are supported by our global projects that aim to strengthen demand for sustainable commodities and create an enabling environment for sustainable investments.
Submit a Proposal
We are always looking for new ideas for partnerships that can catalyse investment in forests and sustainable land use. If you have an idea for a Forest Partnership, enabling conditions project or a demand-side project, you can send it to us through our online application portal.
