1) The Executive Board, supported by a small Secretariat, is responsible for overall coordination with CAFI Partner Countries and decisions regarding the allocation of resources from the CAFI Fund. 2) UNDP’s Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office is responsible for administering the CAFI Fund. 3) UN agencies (including FAO, UNDP), the World Bank and bilateral cooperation agencies (such as the French Development Agency, AFD) serve as implementing organizations to access funding from the Trust Fund and assist CAFI Partner Countries.

Description CAFI is a unique initiative that supports strategic, holistic and country-level REDD+ and Low Emission Development investments while focusing on Central African high-forest cover countries.
Objectives CAFI's objective is to recognize and preserve the value of the forests in the region to mitigate climate change, reduce poverty and contribute to sustainable development.
Activities CAFI’s objective will be attained through substantially scaled-up international support to transformational reforms and ambitious investments on the ground.

CAFI's support focuses on: 1) developing and implementing National Investment Frameworks (NIFs) endorsed at the highest level by national institutions with cross sectoral mandates 2) providing funding based on the achievement of policy and programmatic milestones that are spelled out in letters of intent. 3) encouraging donor coordination and alignment of bilateral assistance to partner countries based on NIFs 4) promoting inclusive participation of all stakeholders

Comments on indicators and goals
How will goals be achieved CAFI country dialogue has several phases:

1.Partner countries develop and present their national investment frameworks addressing all drivers of deforestation and forest degradation. 2.Following a review of the national investment framework, the CAFI Executive Board (EB) agrees to support certain policy reforms and large scale programs. 3.Through a Letter of Intent (e.g. with DRC) the CAFI EB and the partner country government, represented by a government institution with interministerial coordination mandate, agree on timebound targets in policy reform and programmatic performance and the corresponding financial support by CAFI if jointly defined milestones are met. 4.Partner countries develop and implement programs to achieve the milestones in the Letter of Intent with the support of implementing organizations.
