Governance of Forests Initiative

Overview

"The Governance of Forests Initiative (GFI) is a collaboration between WRI, the Instituto do Homem e Meio Ambiente da Amazonia (IMAZON), and the Instituto Centro de Vida (ICV) to develop a framework of indicators for assessing and improving governance in the forest sector, as an essential precursor to debating whether and how to unleash market forces to incentivize emissions reductions.

The framework will provide a common definition for “good governance” based on universally accepted principles of transparency, participation, accountability, coordination and capacity. A first round of assessments will focus on Brazil and Indonesia, which are key nations in the context of preserving the world’s remaining tropical forests and raise very different governance challenges."
