Goals of Working Group

The goals of the Working Group are:

  • to bring together diverse experts from across the globe to discuss SRoI and the methods used by SRoI;
  • to evaluate SRoI methods drawing on a variety of perspectives; and
  • to develop an SRoI framework for forest investments.



The following milestones and timelines guide the Working Group:

  1. Establish a steering committee, composed of SRoI experts, to collaborate to achieve the goals of the Working Group (September 2020);
  2. The steering committee will identify diverse methods for SRoI and evaluate these methods in a peer reviewed paper (May 2021);
  3. The steering committee will prepare a SRoI framework for forestry, drawing from literature review and interviews, and will apply the framework to different types of forestry, including native forests, plantations, agro-forestry (among others). A peer reviewed paper will be developed on the SRoI frameworks for forestry (December 2021);
  4. The results from this work will be presented at different conferences, and mobilized through social media another communication channels.
