Investing in Forest Restoration and Conservation in Tropical Asia

This briefing note reports on outcomes from the 2nd Asia Pacific Rainforest Summit. From 3-5 August 2016, representatives of business, government, and civil society gathered to address the opportunities for public-private partnerships and the harnessing of private sector investment to drive forest restoration and conservation in the Asia-Pacific region. New Forests joined the summit as a member of the Asia Pacific Rainforest Partnership (APRP), a private sector roundtable that launched in December 2015 to foster private-public cooperation on forest conservation, restoration, and REDD+. In this briefing note, we present some of the key policy proposals and the opportunities they present for private sector engagement in forest restoration and conservation.
