Sourcebook for funding sustainable forest management


The online CPF Sourcebook on Funding for Sustainable Forest Management has been developed to help users efficiently locate global funding sources for sustainable forest management projects.  

The sourcebook compiles information on funding sources, policies and delivery mechanisms, with particular focus on projects in developing countries. Its contents come from various sources: donor agencies and countries, CPF members, international forest-related organizations and instruments, developments banks, private sources, regional processes, foundations and international non-governmental organizations.

A major component of the sourcebook is the database of funding sources which contains information on over 600 funds and is a valuable starting point in the search for funding opportunities.


Updated in 2011, the sourcebook was developed and is maintained by FAO in collaboration with other CPF members.

While great care has been taken to check the information presented in this web site, all information given here is indicative and must be confirmed with local offices of the funding agency or donor, since policies, organizational set-up and procedures are subject to change.

Please be advised that FAO is not able to provide verbal or written support to any funding proposals submitted to funding organizations listed on this web site nor can it be guaranteed that proposals would be funded.
