FCMC is a global project funded by the United States Agency for International Development, and implemented by Tetra Tech along with a coalition of partners
FCMC's core mission is to build technical capacity by developing tools and training that support USG contributions to the international architecture for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+). At the mission level, FCMC will contribute to REDD+ readiness by enabling countries to access "pay-for-performance" finance and by identifying sustainable development options that represent "no-regrets" investments in climate change mitigation and adaption.
Services provided by the FCMC team include analysis, evaluation, tools and guidance for program design support, training materials, meeting and workshop facilitation at local and national levels. FCMC is based in Washington, DC with regional short-term or technical assistance in Latin America, Africa and Asia. Task Leaders have access to expertise within partner organizations as well as international consultants. The team will work with USAID missions and bureaus to define priorities and implement activities that support REDD+ and other USG climate change objectives.
