Forest-Climate Working Group Learning Exchange Series

The Forest Carbon and Climate Program (FCCP) is partnering with the Forest-Climate Working Group (FCWG) to offer a curated Learning Exchange Series on forest carbon and climate issues to group members and the public.

The FCWG represents a diverse group of forest interests including landowners, industry, conservationists, academia and carbon market interests and has worked together for more than eight years to leverage the full potential of U.S. forests and forest products to provide climate change solutions. This group seeks to engage their members in learning experiences to grow internal knowledge and capacity in the group, bring into new ideas and expertise, and inform current and upcoming discussions on policy and strategy around the topic of forest carbon management.
