Global Learning & Knowledge Exchange Project


The objective of this component is to organize and facilitate knowledge exchange, learning and capacity building on REDD+ and climate change issues at regional and global levels, and to strengthen the networks and alliances of IPLC organizations within and across regions with a view to enhancing their representation and voice in regional and global policy fora.

This component will have a global focus. Activities will include participants from FIP pilot countries and regions as well as other developing countries.

The Global Project will have the following three components:

  1. Global Learning, Outreach and Information Sharing
  2. Technical assistance & Secretariat services to the Global Steering Committee (GSC)
  3. Planning, Monitoring and Reporting

Structure of the Global Component

The Global Steering Committee (GSC)

Provides intellectual and policy leadership to the DGM and monitors the overall implementation of the DGM. The GSC also has an important role in external interactions with contributor countries and other partners to advocate for IPLCs in international forums on climate change and REDD+. The GSC will ensure that the program lessons are widely disseminated. The GSC will mediate complaint and grievance issues if requested by National Steering Committees (NSC). The GSC approves the annual work program to be implemented by the Global Executing Agency (GEA) for the Global Component.

The Global Executing Agency

The GEA will carry out the agreed activities of the Global Component and will have responsibility for the overall communications and outreach activities of the DGM. Conservation International (CI) has been selected as the Global Executing Agency for the Global component of the DGM. AS GEA, CI will coordinate actively with the NEAs in the FIP pilot countries to monitor and document the implementation progress of the DGM and coordinate the knowledge and learning exchange activities. The GEA will liaise with global partners working on similar issues to enhance synergies and learning opportunities through the DGM. The GEA will also act as Secretariat for the GSC and facilitate a grievance redress and complaints mechanism on behalf of the GSC.
