Dedicated Grant Mechanism

Unique to the Forest Investment Program (FIP), the $80 million Dedicated Grant Mechanism for Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (DGM) is a one-of-a kind program designed and led by representatives of indigenous peoples groups and local communities in FIP countries to enhance their capacity to engage in and contribute to local, national, and international REDD+ dialogue and actions.

Through the DGM, sustainable forest-use practices led by indigenous peoples and local communities are supported, shared, and elevated to the global policy arena. It is the largest global REDD+ initiative created solely for and by indigenous peoples and local communities.

“We have never had this kind of program before… we have the ownership. This is a good opportunity for indigenous peoples to exercise our capacities in managing programs and also funding.”
