Forest & Farm Facility (second phase)


Forest and Farm Facility (FFF) is a partnership programme, launched in 2012, between Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN (FAO), the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the International Institute for Development and Environment (IIED) and AgriCord. In 2013-2017 Finland supported FFF with EUR 4,2 million. FFF works from local to international level. The goal for the programme is to cover 25 countries. The development impact of FFF is Climate Resilient Landscapes and Improved Livelihoods . FFF emphasises the role of the forest and farm producer organisations (FFPO) in action against climate change and in increasing livelihoods especially for women, youth and indigenous peoples. The FFF’s outcomes reflect the integrated approach of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: 1) More inclusive governance and cross-sectorial processes lead to enabling policies and legal environment for FFPOs; 2) Increased entrepreneurship, access to markets and finance through equitable value chains and business development services within FFPOs; 3) Improved delivery of landscape scale mitigation, adaptation and resilience for climate change through direct engagement of FFPOs and integration with inclusive livelihood approaches; 4) Improved and equitable access to social and cultural services. Finland's support to the FFF Phase II in 2018-2020 is EUR 2,1 million.
