Forest restoration business analysis in Amazonas state, Brazil

CSF-Brazil, in partnership with World Wildlife Fund in Brazil (WWF-Brazil), is conducting a feasibility study of forest restoration projects at a landscape level in southern Amazonas (AM) state, Brazil.

The New York Declaration on Forests - launched at the UN Climate Summit 2014 - established a goal of restoring 350 million hectares worldwide by 2030 to support global warming mitigation. However, mobilizing funding from the private sector to address the finance gap to achieve Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) at scale has proven an enormous challenge.
