The declaration formalizes our commitment to continue to reduce deforestation, to develop partnerships with private sector initiatives that leverage the opportunities available through jurisdictional programs, and to channel, in a timely and effective manner, performance-based funds to forest-based economic development that respects forests for producers, foresters, farmers, ranchers, indigenous peoples, local communities and other forest stakeholders. To achieve this goal, it is imperative that we have greater access to financial and technical support and, more importantly, domestic and international market and non-market opportunities for emissions reductions achieved by our programs.
