International forest-related climate finance
As of: April 2020
Objective and activities
The project aims to increase the effectiveness of forest-related climate finance and to increase capacity in partner countries to reduce emissions in the forest and land-use sector. For this purpose, three lines of action are pursued. First, the strategic positioning of the issue shall be improved internationally and progress in mobilizing private climate finance shall be achieved. Secondly, the coordination of relevant actors for the effective implementation of forest-relevant climate financing and for the achievement of the goals of the New York Declaration on Forests shall be supported. Thirdly, the implementation of climate finance shall become more effective through selected measures in partner countries.Improved coordination of key donors of climate finance and knowledge transfer from project activities in international initiatives shall strengthen ambitious climate protection through forests.
State of implementation/results
