Funding forest landscape restoration using a business-centred approach: an NGO’s perspective

Screen Shot 2016-07-15 at 20
There is a growing realization that the private sector constitutes a promising funding mechanism for a wide community of players working to restore degraded forest landscapes.

For non-governmental organizations (NGOs), an understanding of businesses’ needs, the motivations of private enterprises and appropriate engagement strategies all require careful consideration, particularly as traditional funding options are unlikely to suffice in an evolving environmental finance market.

The aim of this article is to examine financial solutions for forest landscape restoration (FLR) projects through WeForest’s understanding and experience of corporate engagement. It will look beyond traditional funding mechanisms to discuss the need for business-centred approaches that engage with the corporate community, including end users.
