On Wednesday, 25 September, participants from the Forest Investment Program (FIP) pilot countries, civil society, non-governmental organizations and multilateral development banks reconvened for the second day of the Fifth FIP Pilot Countries Meeting in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

In the morning, participants resumed discussions on the FIP proposed approach to results management and annual reporting. Christine Roehrer, Senior Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist, Climate Investment Funds (CIF) Administrative Unit, congratulated participants for having reached consensus on an approach for results measurement and reporting on FIP investment plans. They also heard presentations on Indonesia’s FIP Investment Plan and improving local governance through Kapeha, also known as Forest Management Units.

In the afternoon, participants were provided with an opportunity to give a brief overview of their institutional arrangements for national forest management and governance. They heard presentations from Unilever and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) on private sector involvement in REDD+ and other related activities. They also heard a presentation from The Nature Conservancy on jurisdictional approaches to REDD+ as well as a presentation from the Brazilian delegation on a successful FIP project entitled “Environmental Regularization of Rural Lands in the Cerrado Biome.”
