Countries of Implementation
The beneficiaries of the project are CSOs and LC in four FCPF eligible countries in East Asia and the Pacific, namely Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu and Vietnam, who will participate in national-level REDD+ capacity building activities and in regional knowledge exchange events. These four countries are eligible for the following reasons:
- Their respective governments have signed Readiness Grant Agreements with the FCPF, and have begun implementing them (as confirmed by a Bank mission), thereby allowing the project to reinforce their REDD+ Readiness efforts;
- They are not beneficiaries of the Global Dedicated Grant Mechanism (DGM) of the Forest Investment Program (FIP); and
- They are not beneficiaries of FCPF Capacity Building Phase 1 funds.
