The Forest & Farm Facility will develop and fund partnerships at local, national, regional and international levels, and offer grants that enable local stakeholders to form organizations and alliances. In addition, it will provide grants to governments to encourage the establishment or strengthening of cross-sectoral platforms, to better coordinate multi-stakeholder and multi-sector cooperation and dialogue. In this way, the Facility will catalyze more equitable and inclusive governance and finance mechanisms at national, sub national and local levels.
Local stakeholders grants
At local grass-root level – by facilitating strong and equitable partnerships amongst smallholders, communities and indigenous peoples, enabling them to make their voices heard in policy making processes at local, regional, national and global levels on forest landscape issues. The Forest & Farm Facility also supports capacity building of local groups to unlock fi nancial opportunities for investments in forest and farm development.
At national level – by supporting governments to ensure that forestry is part and parcel of new and/or existing multi-sectoral platforms. This is done through enhanced dialogue, information and capacity building in order to better coordinate the various ministries, private sector and civil society stakeholders involved in, or affected by, policies and activities on forest landscapes.
