2012 Study on Forest Financing
This study identifies the knowledge on forest finance obtained from multiple sources, local and national government experts, other experts and representatives of multilateral institutions. The study also identifies a number of gaps in information about forest finance, most notably the need to be able to access data on forest finance. The cross-sectoral impacts and impediments to forest finance are still undefined, and information about them is difficult to obtain. In the future, these gaps in knowledge about forest finance from all sources need to be addressed so that countries have an honest overview of where financing is coming from and where it is in decline. The study makes some recommendations regarding these and other areas of finance.
