Forest Foundation Philippines’ grant program has supported over 700 projects since 2002.
Tropical Forest Conservation Act
Our mission to protect the Philippines’ tropical forests is enabled by the US Tropical Forest Conservation Act (TFCA). which resulted in two Tropical Forest Conservation Agreements (TFCA1 and TFCA2). Under this, a ‘debt-for-nature’ agreement converts the Philippines’ debt into funds that are used by the Foundation for forest protection and conservation activities.
Second Tropical Forest Conservation Act (TFCA 2)
Due to promising results from projects funded by TFCA1, TFCA2 was signed in 2013 and over US$ 32M was allocated for the protection and conservation of forests from 2017 to 2027
First Tropical Forest Conservation Act (TFCA 1)
Under TFCA1, US$ 8.25M was allocated for the protection and conservation of forests from 2002 to 2016.
