Who is our customer

Conservation International (CI) and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) are the implementing partners of the Cloud Forest Blue Energy Mechanism (CFBEM).

What is our funding objective?

CFBEM aims to mobilize domestic commercial finance to reforest and conserve cloud forests in Latin America that provide crucial benefits to the hydropower industry. It uses an innovative “pay for success” financing technique in which a hydropower plant pays for measurable ecosystem benefits provided by cloud forests within the plant’s catchment – principally reduced sedimentation, increased water flow and improved water regulation.

Why do we fund this investment?

This project aligns with FMO’s impact objectives to pioneer green, inclusive and economic development through innovative finance and partnerships at the intersection of FMO’s focus sectors (energy and forestry).
