Tracking Forest Finance


The project was initiated in 2011 through a partnership with Forest Trends. The purpose was to map and categorize international financial flows that arrived in Brazil for investment in REDD +(Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) initiatives during the years 2009-2012. Initially, the focus was on mapping the donations received from multilateral agencies, national governments, agencies and private foundations . The information gathered included:

1. Who are the donors, managers and implementers of these resources;

2. What is the amount of funding involved in these arrangements;

3. The aims of these arrangements and supported activities;

4. The timing of commitments and disbursements of funds.

The information is used as a planning tool, to enable better coordination and efficiency in terms of financing for REDD + donors, developing countries, decision makers and agents/ implementing institutions. This first phase of the survey was closed in the first half of 2013.

In its second phase, the project aims at continuing the data collection initiated in the first phase, updating it for the years 2013, 2014 and 2015. It also aims at publishing articles containing analyses of efficiency and distribution of resources in different activities related to REDD +. Further, the project plans on doing a workshop for discussion, review and validation of the national report.

The following presentation shows information of the four countries initially included in the study. To see the updated information, please visit:
