“Climate change does not respect borders; it does not respect who you are – rich and poor, small and big. Therefore, this is what we call ‘global challenges,’ which require global solidarity” – Ban Ki-Moon
FCCF recently held its yearly meeting with its partners in Guatemala to focus on the connections and linkages between the investees of the Fund. This interaction plays an important role in the development and the evolution of the Fund, and gives the opportunity to all players to share their ideas and progress for the future.
FCCF makes two post-Covid investments in Guatemala
Following the period of disruption caused by Covid-19, the Fund has built two new partnerships in Guatemala with the forest management company Forestal Naj-Ché and the Carmelita forest community.
About our investments
Our mission: Investing in business models for the restoration of tropical forests
We believe the sustainable management of degraded and secondary forests can contribute to the preservation of biodiversity and contribute to the mitigation of climate change.
About the mitigation of climate change
A strong network of partners in Latin America
FCCF does more than simply providing financing. We work with our partners to support innovation in forest management, business models and wood value chains, to help small and medium sized forest owners and forest communities to receive more benefits from their forests.
About our partners
Our Theory of Change
SDF of local forest owners are under management and deforestation rates are reduced. Active management improves forest growth, biodiversity value, species composition and carbon stocks.
Wood Value Chains
Sustainable value chains for SDF wood develop. Value chains finance the sustainable management of SDF and renumerate forest owners in line with opportunity costs.
Equity & Inclusion
The value generation in the SDF value chain is distributed, fairly, including to small and medium forest owners and local & indigenous communities. The share of women in the investee workforce increases.
