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.

BioCarbon Fund (BioCF)

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

The Fund will provide technical assistance for REDD+ implementation and measures which improve the enabling environment for private sector investment; offer a finance for Verified Emission Reductions associated with avoided deforestation; and secures private sector finance, for example through purchasing commitments for sustainable commodities produced in the jurisdiction (sometimes called ‘offtake agreements’). Each country programme under the BioCarbon Fund will operate at the jurisdiction-scale, that is within a landscape-wide area that is governed by a single political jurisdiction.

Total budget £50,000,000

Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF)

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

The Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) was established in 2008 to assist developing countries in their efforts to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation and foster conservation, sustainable management of forests, and enhancement of forest carbon stocks (all activities commonly referred to as "REDD+") by providing value to standing forests. The FCPF is a multi-donor Trust Fund managed by the World Bank. It has two separate but complementary funding mechanisms — the Readiness Fund and the Carbon Fund.

Partnerships for Forests (P4F)

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

The Partnerships for Forests programme (P4F) supports investment models in which the private sector, public sector and communities can achieve shared value from forests and sustainable land use. It aims to add value to standing forests by incubating new investments in agroforestry and non-timber forest products, and helping local and indigenous community enterprises, smallholder farmers and larger businesses connect to new markets and scale up production. It can also target commodities that have traditionally driven large-scale deforestation, facilitating multi-stakeholder approaches and solutions which support transitions to sustainable production models to fulfil zero-deforestation supply-chain commitments.

Programme Id GB-GOV-13-ICF-0018-P4F
Start date 2017-8-1
Status Implementation
Total budget £18,130,000

REDD Early Movers (REM) Programme

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

The REDD+ Early Movers (REM) Programme, currently operational in Latin America, aims to reward countries or jurisdictions considered as pioneers in forest protection and climate mitigation. It targets countries or regions that have already taken ambitious actions to protect forests and provides conditional payments upon verified emission reductions from avoided deforestation (REDD+). Results-based payments in the REM Programme are invested according to a “benefit-sharing strategy” that has been jointly agreed by partners.

Programme Id GB-GOV-13-ICF-0019-REM
Start date 2015-9-1

Reducing Deforestation Through Improved Spatial Planning in Papua Provinces, Indonesia

UK - Foreign, Commonwealth Development Office (FCDO)

The objective of the programme is to support Indonesia and the provinces of Papua and West Papua to improve spatial plan processes and implementation in order to prevent deforestation and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Technical assistance will be provided to improve the revision and implementation of Papua and West Papua provincial spatial plans; to improve transparency and build constituency in spatial planning at provincial level; and to foster national policy dialogue and engagement to support Papua’s commitment to protect its forest. Support will be focused largely on two provinces – Papua and West Papua – and relevant national ministries (particularly Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of Agrarian and Spatial Planning), which offer the potential to realise significant reductions in emissions through improved land use planning and economic development strategies which recognise the value of forests to the provincial economies.
