Piloting Multiple-Benefit Investment Packages through forest/landscape restoration and REDD+ in Rwanda for scaling up in Africa
As of: March 2019
Objective and activities
The project aims to promote the restoration of a mosaic of forest landscapes and enhance carbon stocks in Rwanda as well as deepen commitments to FLR across Eastern Africa. It aims to stimulate increased public and private investment in FLR at community, district, national and regional levels. The planned measures will support enabling conditions through policy and programmatic frameworks, the establishment of a Private-Public Partnership (PPP), and pilot restoration of carbon intensive landscapes in two districts. The measures will also stimulate market demand for restoration products and increase structured investment mechanisms that target small and large investors.
