Sustainable forest management needs between US$70 billion and US$160 billion each year to be implemented properly, but official development assistance to forestry only covers about 1 percent of the estimated total financing need.
Clearly, those numbers don’t work for forests.
The private sector has a role to play in filling the financing gap. And it is stepping in to fill that need – especially in countries where there is considerable private forest investment. But available data points to an uneven distribution of private forest investment across regions and countries.
