A unique trust fund collaboration to fight deforestation in central Africa

New York - Responding to accelerating deforestation in the world’s second largest tropical rainforest in the central African region, representatives of African, European and South American countries along with international organizations have come together in an unprecedented initiative.

The Central African Forest Initiative (CAFI) is a collaboration between the United Nations, World Bank, Brazil, Germany, Norway, France, United Kingdom and European Union and six Central African countries; Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Cameroon, Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon.

The initiative has the objective to mitigate climate change, reduce poverty, and contribute to sustainable development. The CAFI Multi-Donor Trust Fund, managed by the Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office, will enable donors to deliver efficient and predictable multi-year, country-based funding for the initiative.
