Land-use finance mapping in Colombia

This EU REDD Facility land-use finance mapping in Colombia focuses on the Agriculture, Forestry, and Other Land Use (AFOLU) sector. It aims to identify financial flows and strategies for supporting climate change and forest conservation within the Herencia Colombia Programme. It differentiates finance sources among climate-aligned, conditionally aligned, and non-climate-aligned.

Land-use finance mapping in Ecuador

This EU REDD Facility study maps public and private financing impacting REDD+ initiatives, seeking to identify investment flows aligned with combating deforestation and forest degradation. Preliminary results reveal imbalanced financial flows, highlighting the need to redirect funds towards sustainability, aligning with global efforts against deforestation, climate change and biodiversity loss.

Land-use finance mapping in Cambodia

Cambodia’s National REDD+ Strategy 2017-2026 (NRS) aims to contribute to national and global climate change mitigation by improving management of the country’s natural resources, particularly forest lands. The Action and Investment Plan for implementation of the National REDD+ Strategy (AIP-NRS) seeks to mobilise financial resources for the strategy’s proposed activities.

Land-use finance mapping in Papua New Guinea

The land-use sector is a major source of public revenue in Papua New Guinea (PNG). The study analyses the major flows of climate-relevant land-use finance in PNG, to understand how revenues and expenditures could be redirected to align with climate change outcomes while continuing to support livelihoods and economic growth.

Land-use finance mapping in Central Highlands, Vietnam

The study highlights the importance of the land-use sector in the Central Highlands region and the potential negative impact on forests of planned public investments. It demonstrates that additional support is needed for Central Highlands to transition to sustainable commodity production and align planned investments with forest protection objectives.

Land-use finance mapping in Côte d’Ivoire

The study shows that the current level of land-use investment makes up only a small fraction of the expected needs for implementing Côte d’Ivoire’s REDD+ Strategy. It identifies main gaps and underlines the low levels of investment in reforestation and sustainable forest management, sustainable domestic energy or sustainable mining.
