About Forest Governance Initiative: FGI
Forest can change the world
Forest Governance Initiative aims to contribute to the global tropical forest and biodiversity conservation and climate change mitigation by using satellite technology and multi-stakeholder partnerships.
JICA and JAXA launched the Forest Governance Initiative at UNFCCC COP 21 in Paris in 2015. JICA and JAXA have committed to the Forest Governance Initiative through developing the JJ-FAST, promoting capacity development, and spreading good practices on forest conservation for contributing to fighting against deforestation in developing countries and global climate change.
JICA and JAXA call development partners and private companies to join the initiative to work together to change the world better.
