A multilateral project administered by the World Bank, it will avoid deforestation by building sustainable livelihoods in developing countries. Defra is supporting programmes in Indonesia and Zambia.
UK’s funding, along with other donors, will help improve management of landscapes and seascapes covering 300 million hectares, and reduce projected emissions of carbon dioxide by 750 million tons.
The programme operates in the Cerrado and Caatinga biomes in Brazil, over the course of four years (2017 - 2021). As a follow-up phase to a similar ICF intervention in Brazil, the programme aims to restore deforested and degraded land on small- and medium-sized farms and will target the barriers experienced by farmers in accessing rural credit.
The 'Low-Carbon Agriculture and Avoided Deforestation in Brazil, phase 1' project operates in the Amazon and Atlantic Forest biomes in Brazil. The project aims to promote sustainable rural development, restoring deforested and recovering degraded land, and reducing pressure on forests by addressing unsustainable agricultural practices in the Amazon and Atlantic Forest biomes.
The Eco.business fund is a public-private partnership. The fund will promote business and consumption practices that contribute to biodiversity conversation, the sustainable use of natural resources and to mitigate climate change and adapt to its impacts. The Fund will secure private sector investments and support both financial instruments and non-financial instruments, such as technical assistance. This could be, for instance, helping sustainably certified farmers to grow shade covered coffee plantations.
The Montreal Protocol is an international environmental agreement with universal ratification to protect the earth’s ozone layer by eliminating use of ozone depleting substances (ODS), which would otherwise allow increased UV radiation to reach the earth, resulting in higher incidence of skin cancers and eye cataracts, more-compromised immune systems, and negative effects on watersheds, agricultural lands and forests
This World Bank-managed project aims to improve the management of protected areas and biologically-critical ecosystems, in order to avoid deforestation and increase resilience to climate change. The project will focus heavily on biodiversity conservation and in particular tackling the causes of human-elephant conflict.
This World Bank-managed project aims to improve the management of ecosystems in selected locations Sri Lanka for conservation and community benefits by enhancing the management of protected areas and biologically-critical ecosystems, in order to avoid deforestation and increase resilience to climate change.
The objective of the Fund is the Sustainable Management, Conservation and Restoration of Mangrove Habitats by developing and embedding operational blue carbon markets across the Caribbean, South and Central America that provide local communities with a sustainable income and assist in moving low-income countries towards low-emission, climate-resilient development.
