Forest Investment Attractiveness Index: Usefulness for Sector Management
Nascimento, José Rente
This presentation discusses how the Forest Investment Attractiveness Index (IAIF) and the Process to Improve the Business Climate for Forest Investment (PROMECIF) can be useful to improve forest sector governance. The general objective of the IAIF is to measure the business climate for investments in the sustainable forest business. The IAIF allows the systematic, periodic, quantitative and more rigorous analyses of the factors that affect the success of forest direct investment and business decision making. This presentation was created for a side event to the 24th Session of the Latin American and Caribbean Forestry Commission that took place on June 26th, 2006, in Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic.
