DescriptionThe IUCN Forest Conservation Programme (FCP) is a global thematic programme of the IUCN Secretariat and supports the forest-related activities of the IUCN, including its Members and Commissions. In line with the global IUCN mission, the mission of the Forest Conservation Programme is to influence, encourage and assist societies throughout the world to conserve biological diversity in forests and tree-dominated landscapes, and to ensure that the use of forest resources is equitable and ecologically sustainable. The programme consists of a global secretariat based at the IUCN Headquarters and offices that coordinate the programme's Temperate and Boreal Forest Programme. The programme is also directly linked to and coordinated with a worldwide network of regional forest programmes based in different IUCN regional offices, which enables it to remain actively engaged in a wide range of field-based forest projects, and ensures that its global policy work is well grounded in local realities.
