Project Description
The proposed project is part of a global program - the Dedicated Grant Mechanism for Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (DGM) under the Forest Investment Program, one of the Climate Investment Funds - which has allocated $4.5 million in grant resources to Mozambique. The MozDGM is based on (a) the Design Proposal for the global DGM, which was developed by the Global IPLC Working Group and (b) Mozambique's Forest Investment Plan, submitted by the Government of Mozambique to the Forest Investment Program. It follows the framework guidelines and set of activities covered under the components designed for the global DGM. The Project Development Objective is to strengthen the capacity of local communities, communitybased and civil society organizations to participate in sustainable forest and land management and REDD+ processes at the local, national and global levels.
