Through their participation in global and national steering committees, representatives of Indigenous Peoples and local communities (IPLCs) direct all aspects of the DGM, with support from global and national executing agencies. The GSC is composed of one member from each of the operational National Steering Committees (Brazil, Burkina Faso, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ghana, Indonesia, Mexico, Mozambique, Peru, and the Republic of the Congo), as well as one representative of a country outside the Forest Investment Program (Philippines).
