Mecanismo para Bosques y Fincas

El Mecanismo para Bosques y Fincas (FFF) ofrece apoyo a las organizaciones de productores forestales y agrícolas (pequeños productores agrícolas, grupos de mujeres rurales, comunidades locales e instituciones de pueblos indígenas) para aumentar sus capacidades técnicas y empresariales y para que puedan tener su papel tan importante en la lucha contra el cambio climático y en el mejoramiento de la seguridad alimentaria. El FFF también colabora con los gobiernos para elaborar mecanismos intersectoriales y procesos políticos que aprovechan la contribución de los habitantes de las zonas rurales. El FFF es una asociación entre FAO, IIED, UICN y AgriCord. Entre sus donante actuales se incluyen Alemania, la Unión Europea a través del programa FAO-EU FLEGT, Finlandia, IKEA, Suecia,  los Estados Unidos de América, y los países bajos.
