Explanation:

The statement is correct. The Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) is indeed a global partnership of governments, businesses, civil society, and indigenous peoples. It aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, promote sustainable forest management, and enhance forest carbon stocks.

The statement is incorrect. The FCPF does not provide financial aid to universities, individual scientists, or institutions for scientific forestry research. Its focus is on supporting countries in their REDD+ efforts rather than funding specific research projects.

The statement is correct. The main objective of the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility is to assist countries in their REDD+ efforts. REDD+ stands for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation, which includes conservation, sustainable management of forests, enhancement of forest carbon stocks, and the role of sustainable development in developing countries. The FCPF provides financial and technical assistance to countries in implementing REDD+ programs.
