The Forest, Governance, Markets and Climate Programme (FGMC) is a programme aimed at tackling forest governance failures in developing timber producing countries and the consequent market failures that result in illegal exploitation of forest land and resources and the associated trade in timber and other commodities. As a DFID flagship programme, FGMC is an important part of the UK government's broader international initiative on climate change. Addressing governance failures in developing countries and supporting markets for legally produced timber and commodities grown on forest land and essential elements in global efforts to tackle deforestation and mitigate global warming. Given China's predominant position in the international forest product trade, working together with China is important to achieving the programme's overarching objectives.
