Published in January: ETFRN News 54 Focuses on Private Investment

Issue 54 of ETFRN News: Good Business: Making Private Investment Benefit Tropical Forests, published by Tropenbos International in January 2013, presents a compelling case for revisiting business as usual. As policy-makers and private actors redefine their strategy to seize opportunities and manage the risks associated with emerging forest-related markets, these articles demonstrate that well targeted investments can yield economic, social and environmental benefits.

The collection groups articles in five categories:

  • large-scale investments
  • small-scale forestry,
  • catalyzing investments,
  • coalitions and partnerships,
  • tools and approaches

It includes articles on benefit sharing and investing in locally controlled forestry.

ETFRN stands for the European Tropical Forest Research Network, a network on forests and development, which aims to ensure that European research contributes to conservation and sustainable use of forest and tree resources in tropical and subtropical countries.
