Financing sustainable forest management

Document Summary: 

This brief summarises the experiences and lessons learned from two projects in Latin America. These projects produced assessments of the status, experiences and prospects for financing mechanisms in 19 Latin American countries. Recent experiences show that many countries in Latin America are already using a wide range of financing sources and mechanisms to support sustainable forest management. National financing strategies, innovation and better communication with other sectors are some of the ways that financing constraints can be overcome.
