(2) SilvaMedFinancing CC in Forestry
  • So far the conventional financing mechanisms (including ODA) for forestry have proven insufficient, particularly regarding additional costs for CC
  • In contrast, new sources and mechanisms specifically for financing CC-related activities in forestry have increased considerably
  • New opportunities for financing have been created in the frame of multilateral conventions and environmental agreements, but also by bilateral cooperation and NGOs
  • The access to these sources of financing is complicated (different regulations and access criteria have created confusion)

  • Only a few of these new sources have a considerable potential:
    • the funds managed by GEF
    • the initiatives of the World Bank, UNEP and FAO
    • the awareness creating and training initiatives of NGOs,
    • the financial sources and capacity building opportunities offered by some bilateral donors (for ex. the new “REDD plus” Partnership)

General conclusions:

Most funds are performance-oriented. They expect from countries an enabling environment for successful investment in SFM and CC-related measures, including

  • Coherent financing strategies based on analysis of CC vulnerability
  • Inter-sectoral approaches
  • Enforcement of laws and regulations
  • Secure forest-land tenure
  • Coherent land-use planning
  • Participation of stakeholders
  • A system of payments for environmental services (PES)
  • A monitoring system

Recommendations:

  • Countries wanting to get access to financing (part. REDD ”Plus” ) should give priority to broad policy reforms to reduce deforestation
    • “REDD Readiness”: financing strategies, law enforcement, secure forest-land tenure, land-use planning, inter-sectoral and multi-stakeholder approaches, analysis and responses to CC vulnerabilities
    • The big 5 “R”: “REDD Readiness Requires Radical Reforms”
  • External (CPMF) partners should give support to:
    • facilitate the access of member countries to the different instruments and mechanisms of financing
    • help create the necessary enabling conditions at country level
