About the Forest Resilience Bond: In partnership with the US Forest Service and the World Resources Institute, Blue Forest developed our signature environmental product, the Forest Resilience Bond (FRB), to overcome the funding gap for forest management. As a first of it's kind public-private partnership, the FRB enables private capital to catalyze public land management on National Forest land, thereby reducing wildfire risk and promoting ecological sustainability, by valuing the resulting ecosystem services. The FRB model is currently deployed exclusively for forest management interventions, but our successful replication and scaling of this ecosystem services model offers a new solution for financing a wide variety of natural infrastructure climate resilience interventions through public-private-partnerships at scale. To date, Blue Forest has launched a $4M pilot FRB project on the Tahoe National Forest, has launched a second $25mm FRB project in 2021, and expects to launch $50M+ in FRB projects over the next five years across California and the Pacific Northwest.
