Form international is founder and partner of the initiative ‘Forests for the Future – New Forests for Africa’.
‘Forests for the Future – New Forests for Africa’ is a multi-stakeholder movement of forest plantation companies, financial institutions, governments, NGO’s and local communities who will actively set up projects and initiatives to boost reforestation with the focus on degraded land. There are several issues that need attention: like education, awareness and availability of land. The key enabler for reforestation is access to finance. Funds need to become aware of the huge impact they will have when investing in forestry.
