The Global Forest Governance Project: Strengthening Voices for Better Choices aims to enable and actively implement forest governance arrangements that facilitate and promote sustainable and equitable forest conservation and management in three continents.
The project focuses on the following six countries:
- Brazil, South America
- Democratic Republic of Congo, Central Africa
- Ghana, West Africa
- Sri Lanka, South Asia
- Tanzania, East Africa
- Viet Nam, Southeast Asia
The project was formulated in response to a call for proposals by the European Commission (EC) to assist the implementation of the EC’s own “Forest Law Enforcement Governance and Trade” (FLEGT) Action Plan.
