Lowering Emissions by Accelerating Forest Finance (LEAF) MEL Partner

Early notice of an upcoming Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) opportunity within the next 6 months for the Lowering Emissions by Accelerating Forest Finance (LEAF).

Further detail regarding the scope and early market engagement to be announced. Suppliers will have an opportunity to attend Early Market Engagement activities. Details TBC.

A MEL partner is required for LEAF programme, which is an ambitious new public-private initiative designed to accelerate climate action and reduce deforestation by providing results-based finance to countries committed to protecting their tropical forests. LEAF aims to mobilise at least $1 billion in financing, kicking off what is expected to become one of the largest ever public-private efforts to protect tropical forests and support sustainable development. BEIS ICF funding will add credibility to the LEAF Coalition, support supplier countries to generate emissions reductions credits, leverage larger private capital flows from corporate buyers, and ensure liquidity in this emerging market space. LEAF will reward and incentivise forest nations to protect their forests, which play a critical role in climate mitigation and contribute towards global climate, biodiversity and sustainable development goals.

Expected evaluation criteria include value for money, how the programme has been managed and review of programme progress against the log frame as well as learning activities.
