The Philippine Tropical Forest Conservation Foundation (PTFCF), Inc. is a non-stock, non-profit, non-government organization established in 2002, under two bilateral agreements between the governments of the United States of America and the Philippines, to provide grants to organizations that empower the people to protect the forests.
The Foundation is seeking proposals from qualified organizations for its Forest Landscape Grant Program in Eastern Samar, Leyte and Southern Leyte.
Through this program, the Foundation intends to:
- Establish a participatory and coordinated strategy to natural resource management on a large scale;
- Increase understanding on the impacts of management decisions on forest ecosystems products and services;
- Mitigate climate change by reducing emissions from forest degradation and deforestation (REDD-Plus) activities consistent with the Philippine National REDD-Plus Strategy; and
