Practical, Applicable and Sustainable Financial Mechanisms (PASFM)

The Practical, Applicable and Sustainable Financial Mechanisms (PASFM) regional initiative, implemented jointly by the La Asociación Coordinadora Indígena y Campesina de Agroforestería Comunitaria Centroamericana (ACICAFOC) and the FAO/National Forest Programme (NFP) Facility, has the objective of learning from successful forest financing arrangements with the aim of replicating, developing and implementing PASFM. The target group of the initiative are the indigenous groups and small farmers who are working to strengthen community forestry and agroforestry models. The PASFM initiative seeks to support the economic and inancial consolidation of the Central American community forestry and agroforestry models, in turn contributing to the Strategic Regional Forest Programme (PERFOR) and to the global forest agenda in the Central American region, including the following countries: Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama.
