We bring long-term finance to projects and companies that stimulate green growth and improve rural livelihoods

Indonesia is expected to be among the top 5 economies in the world by 2030. With a population of 260 million people and consisting of 17,000 islands, it has significant natural resources. While Indonesia’s economy is growing at a steady pace, this high-growth rate poses many challenges, both social and environmental. Deforestation, emissions, rural electrification and poverty alleviation are just a few of these challenges.

Today, Indonesia’s financial sector is not geared towards these challenges – it favours economic growth above anything else – resulting in a lack of credit availability for projects that are commercially viable yet simultaneously address social and environmental challenges the country faces. There is also the need to look beyond aid in financing green growth, climate change mitigation, conservation and smallholder development objectives of Indonesia at scale.

To take advantage of the momentum, a multi-stakeholder group has established the Tropical Landscapes Finance Facility to bring long-term finance to projects and companies that stimulate green growth and improve rural livelihoods. The TLFF was launched by H.E. Darmin Nasution, Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs at the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs, Republic of Indonesia on 26 October 2016.

We support the achievement of the Paris Agreement and Sustainable Development Goals

Our investment opportunities are impact focused ensuring improved management of forests, biodiversity and ecosystem restoration services. Protecting natural capital is the most effective way to support a transition to a green economy and achieve the SDG targets, as 14 out of 17 SDGs are directly affected by the status of natural resources. All TLFF projects involve marginalised communities as active partners and seek to deliver benefits for women, as they are dependent on nature on an everyday basis.

Governance Architecture

The TLFF consists of a Lending Platform and a Grant Fund. Under the Lending Platform, long-term loans issued by TLLF are securitized through a Medium-Term Note (MTN) program. The Grant Fund provides technical assistance and co-funds early stage development costs, offering an opportunity for corporate and private foundations to leverage their funding with private finance.

The TLFF Secretariat, hosted by ICRAF, works in a collaborative manner with stakeholders and offers comprehensive support towards the achievement of the stated goals of the Tropical Landscapes Finance Facility. The Secretariat assists and provides administrative support to the TLFF Lending Platform, TLFF Grant Fund and all other related entities.
