This learning review aims to capture the experience of the Climate Investment Funds’ (CIF) Forest Investment Program (FIP) in encouraging greater involvement of Indigenous Peoples and local communities (IPLCs) in financial and policy processes that relate to forests. It focuses on the use of an innovative Dedicated Grant Mechanism (DGM) and serves as a resource for stakeholders – including forest-dependent communities, DGM practitioners, donors, multilateral development banks and climate funds – to understand the early outcomes of the DGM and identify useful lessons and insights to guide current and future DGM implementation.

The DGM is a special initiative under FIP to support the full and effective participation of IPLCs in the effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation and forest degradation and promote sustainable forest management and forest carbon stocks, a global process known as REDD+.
