On 22 February 2022, a major step forward was taken in Ketapang, West Kalimantan, that allowed local climate-friendly and community-based enterprises to show their products to policy makers and potential investors and customers. And importantly, these producers of handicrafts, organic fertilizers, fruits, vegetables and mushrooms - winners of a new business competition - also shared what they need to expand.
To attract private finance in support of sustainable landscapes – delivering on production, protection, and inclusion – there is an important role for project organisers to support project developers in getting investable landscape projects off the ground. Combing expertise and experience, IDH and WWF have developed a guide to help organizers in identifying and enabling investment opportunities in support of sustainable landscape goals.

After launching the first call for business proposals WWF is pleased to announce a major milestone in the progress of the Mobilising More for Climate program (MoMo4C) in Cameroon.
Over one hundred local businesses have responded to the local call for proposals for Mobilising More for Climate (MoMo4C) from Ngoyla and Yokadouma councils in Cameroon. How can these entrepreneurs help preserve biodiversity and nature in their home country? Roberty Essama, WWF Cameroon, tells us about the priority themes for impact entrepreneurs.
In an effort to stimulate the development of climate-friendly community businesses in Ketapang District, West Kalimantan Province, Tropenbos Indonesia has organized a series of climate friendly and community-based business competition activities. Starting from the pre-selection and training stage of making a business plan, the competition resulted in 5 business cases. The finalists received technical assistance to implement their business plans.
Ecotourism, agroforestry (for oil palm and cocoa), beekeeping and fish farming are among ten sustainable green business proposals that were selected in the Sefwi Wiawso, Juabeso, and Bia landscapes in Ghana, to be further developed under the Mobilizing More for Climate (MoMo4C) programme. They were chosen for their focus on innovative climate actions that address key landscape challenges such as the loss of biodiversity due to deforestation and forest degradation, and dependence on one a crop, by building adaptive capacities, promoting crop and income diversification, and value addition.
