Global Learning and Knowledge Exchange Project

The country projects of the Dedicated Grant Mechanism (DGM) support community engagement around climate change and forest management at local and national levels, but these issues also have important regional and global dimensions.

To elevate community voices and priorities beyond the national level, the indigenous peoples and local communities who created the DGM designed a Global Learning and Knowledge Exchange Project (DGM Global).

Under the leadership of its Global Steering Committee, DGM Global supports indigenous peoples and local communities as they share knowledge, develop skills, and strengthen their engagement with networks and organizations to enhance their representation in global conversations around climate change and sustainable forest management.
