The Tropical Forest Finance Facility is a proposal to establish a pay-for-performance mechanism to finance reduced deforestation of tropical forests. The proposal would maximize the efficient use of public credit and builds on major technology breakthroughs for measuring results. This paper proposes a logical framework for understanding the current landscape of international forest finance to explore options for the potential role of the TFFF, and recommends pursuing it as a tropical forest public goods facility to support both development objectives and global public goods objectives. It explains proposed options for assessing performance and allocating returns to the TFFF to achieve these objectives.
