Grant to the Global Plastic Action Partnership (GPAP) to establish inclusive multistakeholder platforms to tackle plastic pollution with partner countries.

Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs

The Global Plastic Action Partnership (GPAP) brings together governments, businesses, and civil society in countries committing to tackling plastic pollution, to support meaningful and tangible action. GPAP operates globally through partnerships that bring the GPAP model to priority Official Development Assistance (ODA)-eligible countries. Through key activities in convening, building roadmaps, and identifying financing solutions, GPAP aims to foster a collaborative approach to reducing plastic pollution, and ultimately improve the environment and the quality of life for people and communities impacted by plastic pollution. GPAP’s work is guided by three strategic pillars: • Convening communities and curating conversations • Generating new insights and action roadmaps • Catalysing coordinated action to scale solutions

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.
