BioCarbon Fund Initiative for Sustainable Forest Landscapes (ISFL)

World Bank

It seeks to promote reduced greenhouse gas emissions from the land sector, including REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation), more sustainable agriculture, as well as smarter land use planning and policies.

The ISFL is intended to operate at a jurisdictional level in an area endorsed by the national government (e.g. a single geographic or political unit, such as a state or province, or even an entire country).Supported programs are therefore expected to take place at significant scale and policy interventions could thus impact the whole jurisdiction.
