The Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF) is an informal, voluntary arrangement among 14 international organizations and secretariats with substantial programmes on forests. These agencies share their experiences and build on them to produce new benefits for their respective constituencies. They collaborate to streamline and align their work and to find ways of improving forest management and conservation and the production and trade of forest products. The CPF usually convenes to discuss strategic areas of coordination between CPF members and to work towards a better coherence between countries. CPF members include: Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR); Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD); Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO); Global Environment Facility (GEF); International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO); International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN); International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO); United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD); United Nations Development Programme (UNDP); United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP); United Nations Forum on Forests (UNFF); United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC); World Agroforestry Centre; and the World Bank.
