Patterns of investing in sustainable landscapes: Investors and investment vehicles in developing countries

Document Summary: 

This report provides a picture of investments in sustainable forestry and agriculture, suggesting where and how this picture can be improved. It also offers a focused assessment of investment and financial infrastructure in Cameroon, Indonesia, Peru and Vietnam. 

The paper pays particularly close attention to sustainable producers, like smallholders, who are unable to access the largest source of investment: private finance. A series of barriers continue to inhibit investment at scale in these actors. The mapping exercise that follows indicates how different investors can address these barriers.
