The FCPF provides a global partnership forum for developing and industrialized countries to build capacity for REDD while piloting and testing performance-based incentives in 30 countries (25 of which already selected).

The FCPF provides a balanced representation of 20 developing and industrialized countries along with observers from UN- REDD, UNFCCC, forest-dependent indigenous populations (UNPFII) and NGOs, other IGOs as well as the private sector.

The Partnership is expected to be strongly complemented by investment funding being developed under the Forest Investment Programme included in the Climate Investment Funds.
