This grant will support the work of the Forest Peoples Programme to ensure that international financial institutions and other international development agencies adopt and fully comply with social and environmental policies that are in line with international standards. Over the course of this grant, the grantee has successfully ensured that indigenous peoples' rights are protected and that effective consultation is now a key principle for multidonor funds that have been established to address forests and climate change. This project will maintain its bottom up approach by assisting forest peoples themselves to engage in policy debates and ensuring that the lessons learned are fed effectively into the advocacy process.
