The Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) is a global partnership of governments, businesses, civil society, and Indigenous Peoples focused on reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, forest carbon stock conservation,the sustainable management of forests, and the enhancement of forest carbon stocks in developing countries (activities commonly referred to as REDD+). The four strategic objectives of the FCPF are:
To assist countries in their REDD+ efforts by providing them with financial and technical assistance in building their capacities to benefit from possible future systems of positive incentives for REDD+.
To pilot a performance-based payment system for REDD+ activities, with a view to ensuring equitable benefit sharing and promoting future large-scale positive incentives for REDD+.
Within the approach to REDD+, to test ways to sustain or enhance livelihoods of local communities and to conserve biodiversity.
To disseminate broadly the knowledge gained in the development of the Facility and the implementation of Readiness Preparation Proposals (RPPs) and Emission Reductions Programs (ERPs).
The FCPF currently has 47 REDD Country Participants (18 in Africa, 18 in Latin America and the Caribbean, and 11 in Asia-Pacific). The partnership relies on an effective and inclusive governance structure, with the Participants Assembly and the Participants Committee (PC) at its core. The FCPF PC is made up of an equal number of forest (REDD+) countries (14) and financial contributors (14), and is also comprised of observers representing indigenous peoples, civil society, international organizations, the UN-REDD Programme, the UNFCCC Secretariat and the private sector.
UNDP is a Delivery Partner of the FCPF Readiness Fund and is currently delivering FCPF Readiness grants in 7 countries.
