The objective of this learning review is to learn lessons from the experience of the Climate Investment Funds’ (CIF)  Forest Investment Program (FIP) and other initiatives in supporting investments in forest-related enterprises. The study identifies key barriers and risks that impact leveraging private finance and examines how to overcome these challenges to increase the viability and scale of private-sector investments, with an emphasis on small and medium-scale enterprises.

FIP works primarily through multilateral development banks (MDBs) to put in place enabling investments, with aspirations towards piloting replicable models of REDD+ asset investment that will attract new and additional sources of finance.
