The annual meeting of grant holders and service providers of DFID’s Forest Governance, Markets and Climate (FGMC) took place in January 2015. Hosted by CIDT, at the Telford Campus of the University of Wolverhampton, and facilitated by CIDT and Itad with Triple Line, the three-day session (5-7th January) started the year on a positive note.
Some 70 people gathered from a range of organisations specialising in forestry and natural resource management to discuss forest governance. The meeting underlined the sheer complexity of monitoring issues related to forest governance – rural livelihoods, timber trade and land tenure – but garnered renewed commitment to collaborate to do so.
