The goal of IPFAF is to improve Indigenous People’s access to finance for forest restoration, conservation, and stewardship by addressing the existing barriers to Indigenous Peoples groups’ engagement in global, regional, and national-level initiatives to finance combatting deforestation and promoting natural climate solutions.

The project will support IPs in the key geographies identified in the Plan to Conserve Global Forests: Critical Carbon Sinks: the Amazon basin, Congo Basin, and South East Asia. Dependent on technical assistance needs and engagement opportunities, the project may work in the above mentioned countries (47).
