The Little Forest Finance Book - 14 catalysts to scale up forest-friendly finance (En, Fr, Sp, Ba)
In English, Bahasa, French and Spanish (see bottom of page for pdfs).
The Little Forest Finance Book’s overarching aim is to catalyse an increase in the finance flowing towards forest-friendly development.
It was launched on 16 October 2012 at the 11th Conference of the Parties to the UN Convention on Biological Diversity, in Hyderabad, India.
The book is a reference for decision makers and project stakeholders within governments, NGOs, the private sector, and forest communities who want to understand where forest finance can be raised, how it can best be managed, and the types of activities that it enables.
It seeks to demystify the forest finance landscape, and presents a clear framework of realistic and widely applicable options for decision makers to catalyse further action and debate in this field.
It is grounded in reality rather than theory, and draws on numerous case studies to indicate emerging ideas, best practice, and innovative ways of thinking about forest finance for the future.
As a non-partisan analysis, the Little Forest Finance Book does not favour one proposal over another. We do hope, however, that our work will aid understanding and encourage collaborative dialogue on this vitally important area of research.
