Sustainable Forestry Business Initiatives at IDB

Sep 2006
This presentation discusses some of IDB's initiatives and instruments available to support the development of sustainable forest businesses in LAC. These include initiatives for improving business climate for sustainable forest investments, such as the Forest Investment Attractiveness Index (IAIF) and the Process to Improve the Business Climate for Forest Investment (PROMECIF). They also include those for improving governments' supporting role, such as regulations, policies, institutions, public services; investments or technical assistance; supporting private investments (PRI, MIF, IIC), and the development and implementation of tools for sustainable forest businesses. This presentation was created for the Stora Enso Visit to IDB: Potential Latin American Pulp Mill Projects, held in Washington D.C., on September 14th, 2006.
