A 10(+) step platform for forest-positive action
Building on the recommendations presented in Better Forests, Better Cities, here are Cities4Forests’ detailed recommendations on what city governments can do to support tropical forests. With all actions and policies, it is important to encourage competition from small and mid-sized enterprises (SME) and consult them in the development of new policies. To ensure effectiveness, all policies should have a theory of change. Policies should build on existing metrics and frameworks, for instance using the SDGs as metrics for action and success. In addition, cities should encourage inter-departmental learning opportunities on best practises in forest-positive procurement.
