Africa Forest Carbon Catalyst Fund

Services required: Experience on working on REFORESTATION, FOREST CONSERVATION or SUSTAINABLE FOREST MANAGEMENT in Africa.

Location: Eastern Africa

Questions deadline: N/A

Closing deadline for applications: Rolling Deadline

Project description:

The Catalyst will tackle the problem of there not being enough really strong forest conservation and restoration projects that can absorb significant private investment to have impact at scale. It will do this at a time when there is growing global investor and corporate interest in these projects, especially those in Africa.

Previous approaches have struggled to take projects to scale and sustainability, owing to limited technical capacity, inadequate markets, limiting policy frameworks, and a lack of political will. Recently there have been significant advances and reforms, and the Catalyst is designed to exploit these opportunities while supporting ongoing work to tackle remaining challenges.
