Launch of FOLUR Impact Program

The Food Systems, Land Use, and Restoration (FOLUR) Impact Program is an integrated platform designed to transform food systems by mobilizing sustainable production landscapes in 27 country projects for eight major commodities, including livestock, cocoa, coffee, maize, palm oil, rice, soy, and wheat. FOLUR improves agricultural ecosystems and policies through collaborations with land managers, governments, researchers, the private sector, and financial institutions, boosting economic growth and benefiting human health.

With financing of $345 million from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and expected additional co-financing of over $2.7 billion, FOLUR promotes sustainable integrated landscapes and efficient food value chains at scale.

The FOLUR Impact Program uses an integrated approach to achieve systemic environmental change and support improvements in human well-being, resilience, and economic growth and prosperity. To realize this comprehensive vision, FOLUR harnesses the expertise and reach of multiple sectors: the private sector, governments, financial institutions, land managers, research institutions, and civil society.

The FOLUR Global Platform is led by the World Bank, with support from five key partners:

·       International Finance Corporation

·       Global Landscapes Forum

·       Good Growth Partnership

·       UN Food and Agriculture Organization

·       FOLU Coalition
