WHO IS OUR CLIENT
Forestry East Africa (FEA), a regional forestry association has been founded at the beginning of 2016 by two of FMO's Forestry clients (The New Forests Company and Green Resources).
To enable FEA to address fundamental weaknesses that exist in the forestry sector in East Africa. FEA's objectives are two-fold: to lobby and to provide research. FMO is requested to support the research activities of FEA. Increased dissemination of research is currently lacking and of great importance to the forestry sector in East Africa and can become a driver to provide a valuable proposition to the FEA members.
WHY WE FUND THIS PROJECT
Forestry is seen as a strategic sector to invest in for FMO. Supporting the creation of a forestry association in East Africa through our Capacity Development Funds contributes to a more sustainable sector which is valued by FMO and its (future) clients.

A complaint can be filed in writing, by email, post, or online. The complaint can be filed in English or any other language of the complainant.
