World Bank CIF Requests Feedback on Forest Program

March 2009: The World Bank's Forest Investment Program (FIP), a part of its Climate Investment Framework (CIF), seeks to pilot and demonstrate new approaches to forest management that lead to major impacts in reducing greenhouse gas emissions from forests.

CIF has extended the deadline until 6 April 2009 for comments on the Co-Chair's Summary Second Design Meeting for the Forest Investment Program, as well as the information papers that were prepared before that meeting, which took place in Washington, DC, US, from 5-6 March 2009. Comments may be submitted on the CIF website. Taking into account the comments received, the Administrative Unit will prepare a revised document for approval at the final design meeting, to be held from 7-8 May 2009, at the same venue.
