Project Description

The Programme will provide effective climate change mitigation outcome through investing in sustainable plantation forestry projects in emerging forestry markets of Latin America and Sub Saharan Africa, while also bringing adaptation co-benefits. This investment approach provides developing countries and their rural communities with a solution to increase carbon sinks by producing wood in a sustainable manner and conserving natural forests, whilst contributing to reduction of illegal logging.

Besides direct mitigation achieved in forest plantations, the Programme operations will lead to additional green house gas emission reduction benefits: the protection of natural forests in project areas, as well as the provision of alternative wood resources, will support efforts to combat deforestation and degradation of natural forests in project regions, and part of the carbon contained in harvested trees will be stored in wood products.
