WWF CAMEROON SEEKS THE SERVICE OF A CONSULTANT FOR THE ANALYSIS DES FLUX FINANCIERS DANS LE SECTEUR DU CACAO, DES PFNL ET DU BOIS DES FORETS COMMUNAUTAIRES AU CAMEROUN

WWF (The World Wide Fund for Nature) is an International Non-Governmental Organization that deals with conservation of nature. Our mission is to stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature.

Context

For WWF, responsible cocoa and wood production in the Congo Basin offers an opportunity for sustainable development, enhancing the livelihood of the local communities that depend on it and minimizing its footprint on the environment and biodiversity. WWF believes that when forest and agricultural operations including cocoa production and wood harvesting are sustainably managed, they can preserve and restore critical habitats, help protect watersheds, and improve soil health and water quality. Unsustainable wood harvesting and cocoa production, such as full sun practices with complete clearing of forestlands may on the contrary have serious impacts on people and the environment.

One of the emerging activities in this field is the Dutch government funded Mobilising More 4 Climate (MoMo4C) program. MoMo4C is a five-year program that aims to bring together entrepreneurs, firms, policymakers, investors and civil society organisations to make green business propositions that tackle the impacts and causes of climate change at a landscape level in developing countries, and to attract investments to implement these initiatives.

Mobilising More 4 Climate focuses on developing business propositions for climate-smart agriculture, sustainable water management, food security and ecosystem restoration solutions. These should contribute to climate-resilient development in the landscapes where they are proposed. Mobilising More 4 Climate will facilitate public-private collaboration and attract investments that will scale up such climate action projects. The overall objective of Mobilising More 4 Climate is to link entrepreneurs and companies with potential business cases for climate action to policymakers, investors and civil society organisations to further strengthen these business propositions and ensure a positive climate, environmental and social impact at a landscape level. In Cameroon, the MoMO4C program has identified cacao, community forestry and non-timber forest products (NTFPs) as the key sectors to focus on. As part of this work, WWF wants to have an overview of Financial Flows in the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon. This will allow the program to identify the financial size of the sector, the main actors, the main funding systems in the sector and how they are interlinked. This will help to identify opportunities and further direct the focus of the program in developing pipelines of climate adaptation projects and by designing instruments that can attract public, private and/or blended finance.

Objectives

The overall objective of this consultancy is to obtain a better understanding of the financial flows in the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon which will help WWF develop a strategy to influence these sectors.

The specific objectives are to:

  1. Identify the overall financial size of the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon, the different main current actors (suppliers, buyers) in this sector, the size of their financial role in this sector and their financial interconnections;
  2. Identify the major current and future actors in the private and finance sectors that invest, provide loans or insurance to sourcing and supplying in the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon.
  3. Determine to which extend the actors in the private and finance sectors have assessed the exposure to operational and financial risks associated with ecologic impacts of climate change to the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon.
  4. Identify potential pressure points with the key actors and potentially successful ways to engage with these actors.

 Activities:

  1. Revise approach and develop a detailed work plan
  2. Prepare an overview of the actors in the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon. This overview will be presented in a short report which also includes an estimate of the accuracy (completeness) of the assessment of financial flows that can be done based on this data and advise on how to proceed with the steps c. to f. hereunder.
  3. Identify the overall financial size of the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon and identify financial flows and their financial interconnections, focusing on the full supply chain: key companies (1st and 2nd tier suppliers) and their sourcing companies to identify approximately 75% of capital directed into the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon. Identify the major current and future actors in the finance sector that invest, provide loans or insurance to sourcing and supplying in the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon. By:
    1. Gathering information through traditional financial sources and resources where available.
    2. Conduct interviews with local experts/informants from local producers, producer groups, industries, ministries and banks or with foreign institutions where necessary. On-site where possible, or by telephone/ZOOM.
    3. For each key actor quantify financial exposure to the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors and to which extend the actors in the private and finance sectors have assessed the exposure to financial risks associated with ecologic impacts of climate change to the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon.
  4. Synthesise data and compile lists of key actors.
  5. Recommendations on ways of engagement with these actors.
  6. Produce a report to document these findings.

Outputs

  1. Proposed detailed work plan with defined timelines and research approach according to the present terms of reference
  2. Report with an overview of available data, which includes an estimate of the accuracy of the assessment that can be done, based on this data. In other words; with what percentage of confidence can we indicate the 75% financial flows in the relevant sectors based on available data? Based on this estimate, the core team will decide to go ahead with steps c. to f. defined under the Activities section
  3. One technical report with:
    1. Identified financial flows, quantified if/when possible, related to key actors.
    2. Identified key players from the private and finance sectors responsible for these financial flows (75% of capital directed to cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors) at present or in the future.
    3. Profile of the leading public and private financial institutions and private sector actors identified, including:
  • Environmental and social criteria considered in their capital allocation, lending, and business decision making, going beyond project funding.
  • Main opportunities to bring them to sustainable finance.
  • Main barriers to their engagement with sustainable finance.
    1. Offer recommendations on how to engage with these actors and mainstream ecological impacts in their investment decisions and lending policies and promote investment that contributes to better management of natural systems and governance.
  1. All primary information collected on investments and investors should be deposited in a file made accessible to the project.
