The TLFF consists of a Lending Platform and a Grant Fund. Under the Lending Platform, medium to long-term loans will be issued by TLFF and will be securitized through a Medium-Term Note (MTN) program where appropriate. 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.

Steering Committee

The Steering Committee provides overall guidance to the activities of the TLFF. It works in close collaboration with the Government of Indonesia, institutional partners and relevant civil society stakeholders both in the public and private sectors to advance the stated goals of the TLFF on climate change, emissions reductions, forest conservation and inclusive growth.

Impact Management

Each TLFF Project is managed to the TLFF investment Policy and ESG Standards, and also supports the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). TLFF will also identify key impact objectives for each project and design appropriate measures that include effective consultation with relevant communities. We will measure projects to some or all of our eight core objectives.


Our engagement approach is based on transparency and accountability for all activities we undertake. This is central to the partnerships we form, projects that are implemented and financing opportunities that are generated, so that sustainable development objectives are at the core of what we do. Each project we select goes through rigorous independent environmental impact assessments ensuring that safeguards for the well-being of people, preservation of natural resources and conservation of biodiversity are in place. We transparently publish relevant information about all projects including their social and environmental impacts.
