Bilateral/multilateral donors

How to increase the mobilization of financial resources and how to build a better coordination for development and implementation of sub-regional and intersectoral programs and/or projects in forested Mediterranean landscapes

Organization: FAO and CTFC

Chair: Mr. naser Tahboub (Union for the Mediterranean)

Rapporteur: Ms. Magali Maire (FAO)

Facilitator: Mr. Eduardo Rojas-Briales (FAO)

Background

The Fourth Mediterranean Forest Week is organized taking into account the key results of the previous Mediterranean Week held in Tlemcen, Algeria on March 2013. In this context several sessions are focused on the level of implementation of the Tlemcen Declaration in Mediterranean countries and on several expected results of the Strategic Framework on Mediterranean Forests (intersectoral cooperation, financing mechanism instruments, etc.). This Strategic Framework should become an efficient tool to: 

  • Improve the visibility of the forest sector and promote the mobilization of financial and human resources in the coming years;
  • Provide a consensual framework to improve intersectoral coordination and fostering partnerships between the various stakeholders involved in the management of forest ecosystems and other wooded lands in countries of the region after its integration in national policies (public/private); 

  • Contribute to better coordinate development and implementation of sub-regional and intersectoral programs and/or projects;

  • Facilitate identification and promotion of common positions on Mediterranean forest ecosystems and other wooded lands in international fora;

  • Provide a common vision and roadmap to the Committee on Mediterranean Forestry Questions-Silva Mediterranea. 

Objective

One of the key results of this session should be to initiate the ‘’Regional Financing Platform’’ in the context of the Collaborative Partnership on Mediterranean Forests

Methodology

The session with bilateral/multilateral donors will be focused on the mobilization of financial resources and on ‘’how to build a better coordination for development and implementation of sub-regional and intersectoral programs and/or projects in forested Mediterranean landscapes’’ (Strategic Line 9).

The session should give the opportunity to several key European and Multilateral donors (including European Commission) to present their respective programs and financial instruments potentially of interest for forested Mediterranean landscapes. They should also communicate their key priorities by 2020, based on the framework of strategic lines of the Strategic Framework on Mediterranean Forests.
