Cities4Forests

Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs

The Cities4Forests programme provides a network, between cities in developing nations, to share lessons learned and baselines on forest restoration and protection programmes. This allows best practice to be identified and adopted across cities’ interventions and facilitates accelerated innovation. Defra’s investment in Cities4Forests will finance specific activities that will help decision makers and officials in cities, in a number of developing countries, access tools, resources and technical assistance that can support them in developing policies and interventions to protect and restore forests. The programme will also seek to deliver a ‘global mayoral declaration’ on the value of trees and forests and their role in combatting climate change. The programme will focus on: strengthening institutional capacity and capability through technical assistance to improve developing country’s city government support for and investment in trees, forests, and green infrastructure; supporting developing country’s city governments to increase investment (political, economic, and social) and implement new and/or improved programs to support the management and conservation of inner and nearby forests; supporting and encouraging developing country mayors to increase political action and support for trees and forests as a solution for combatting climate change, supporting better water management, and improving human health and well-being.

ASEAN Low Carbon Energy Programme

Cross-Government Prosperity Fund

Barriers to South East Asia’s low carbon transition are hindering its economic development, which in turn hampers progress in areas such as health, gender equality and reducing poverty. The £15m ASEAN Low Carbon Energy Programme is designed to tackle these barriers, focusing on the two areas with the greatest needs and where the UK has particular strengths: Green Finance and Energy Efficiency. The programme will strengthen policy and regulatory frameworks for green finance and energy efficiency; facilitate greater investment in low carbon technologies, including improved green finance flows; increase innovation and knowledge transfer in energy efficiency and low carbon technologies; and facilitate more efficient use of energy in target countries. As a secondary benefit the programme also opens up commercial opportunities for international, including UK, business, through increased “green” trade and investment, including in energy-efficient goods and services. The programme, which will operate in Burma, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, is due to start its inception phase in early 2019.

ASEAN Economic Reform Programme

Cross-Government Prosperity Fund

The ASEAN Economic Reform programme is designed to tackle two fundamental constraints to growth – a poor business environment and underdeveloped financial markets. Improving the business environment is a key enabler for inclusive economic growth and can provide a significant positive impact on poverty and inequality. It will also positively impact companies in all sectors, providing a more solid foundation for international companies to invest and operate throughout the region. Broadening and deepening financial markets reduces the cost of doing business, increases financial inclusion and reduces constraints on investment, thereby increasing competitiveness and growth potential. The programme will operate in Burma, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam and is due to start its inception in November 2018, with some areas of the programme already being delivered through multilateral partners. Finance providers, FinTech companies and accountancy firms – where the UK has particular strength – are amongst those who stand to benefit directly, along with a wider indirect benefit supporting growth across all business sectors.
