USAID Extended Forest Team's (Oct) Monthly Meeting

by webadmin last modified Jan 10, 2013 11:47 AM
Speakers: Bruce Cabarle, Director, Forest Program, WWF-US and David Ford, President and CEO, Metafore Presentation: “Making Markets Work for Forests & People: Three Years of Partnership Between USAID, WWF, and Metafore” Introductions: The Sustainable Forest Products Global Alliance (SFPGA) work to advance a new model for forest conservation and community development in USAID-client countries in which responsible forest management is rewarded in the global marketplace. The objective of the Alliance is to increase the demand for responsibly harvested forest products by buyers in those countries and to increase supply of these forest products from producers in developing countries. By reducing trade in illegally harvested or unsustainably managed forest products, opportunities for resource-dependent communities and low-income producers are developed. Background: Mr. Cabarle and Mr. Ford will present an update of key results, challenges faced by the SFPGA over three years and their resolutions, funding and support leveraged by USAID, emerging issues such as China-based demand for forest products, and private sector rewards for involvement in the Global Alliance.
