At the regional workshop on “Convening Private Sector Investment in Climate-Smart Commodity Production in Southeast Asia,” held on March 29, 2017, 89 private sector leaders and government officials discussed regional needs, opportunities, challenges, and priority actions to accelerate investment in climate-smart, low-emission agriculture and forestry production. Private and public sector participants agreed that an important priority is to increase communication and collaboration. However, this one-day workshop provided limited time for participants to develop country-specific recommendations in this area. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Climate Economic Analysis for Development, Investment and Resilience (CEADIR) activity, therefore, conducted analysis to identify country-specific public-private sector communication and coordination challenges and recommendations to scale up private investment in climate-smart agriculture and forestry in Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam
