The Forest Investment Forum constituted an unprecedented gathering of nearly 150 senior executives of domestic and multi-national forest product companies, private and public sector financial institutions, and leading conservation agencies from around the world.
Organized jointly with World Business Council for Sustainable Development, WWF, Forest Trends, the International Finance Corporation, and the World Bank, the Forum set out to:
- explore opportunities for investments in environmentally and socially sustainable forestry in developing and economic transition countries;
- explore actions that the World Bank Group and Forum participants could take to create an enabling environment for responsible private sector investment;
- and explore the willingness of forum participants to support a process to develop clearly defined and mutually compatible social, economic and environmental investment guidelines.
