The Food Systems, Land Use and Restoration (FOLUR) Impact Program

The Food Systems, Land Use and Restoration (FOLUR) Impact Program is based on the growing recognition that food production systems and land use must improve for the health of people, planet and economies. With a commitment of $307 million from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and expected additional co-financing, FOLUR will promote sustainable integrated landscapes and efficient food value chains at scale.

The Forest Investment Program(FIP)

Covering nearly a third of all land on Earth, forests are essential for livelihoods and jobs, habitats for animals, soil and water conservation, and carbon capture and storage. Since 1990, the world has lost 129 million hectares of forests—an area almost equivalent in size to South Africa—due to agricultural expansion, conversion to pasture land, infrastructure development, destructive logging, and fires. The Forest Investment Program (FIP) is empowering developing countries to manage natural resources in a way.

The Dedicated Grant Mechanism for Indigenous People and Local Communities(DGM)

Forests are essential both for the protection of biodiversity and as a natural solution to climate change. Despite efforts to protect the forests, deforestation continues to accelerate. This global challenge requires support from many different stakeholders, and the most critical partners can be found in and around the forests every day.

The Forest Carbon Partnership Facility(FCFP)

The Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) is a global partnership of governments, businesses, civil society, and Indigenous Peoples focused on reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, forest carbon stock conservation, the sustainable management of forests, and the enhancement of forest carbon stocks in developing countries, activities commonly referred to as REDD+.

The BioCarbon Fund Initiative for Sustainable Forest Landscapes (BioCFISFL)

The BioCarbon Fund Initiative for Sustainable Forest Landscapes (ISFL) is a multilateral fund, supported by donor governments and managed by the World Bank. It promotes reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the land sector, including efforts to reduce deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries (REDD+), sustainable agriculture, as well as smarter land-use planning, policies and practices.

The Program on Forests(PROFOR)

Forest-smart is a development approach that recognizes forests’ significance for sustaining growth across many sectors, including agriculture, energy, infrastructure, and water. It transforms how sectors operate by identifying opportunities for mutual benefit and creating practical solutions that can be implemented at scale. Working across sectors and with a variety of partners is fundamental to the forest-smart approach as such collaboration generates new understanding and innovation about how forests contribute to other sectors for better development outcomes.
