FTA names new Independent Steering Committee members 

The CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA) has named two new, independent members of its Independent Steering Committee (ISC). The appointment was formalized by the Board of Trustees (BoT) of FTA’s lead center, the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), following a review of candidatures by the ISC. The ISC – along with the CIFOR BoT, to which it reports, and the FTA Management Team (MT), the work of which it oversees – is a key component of the governance of FTA. The ISC oversees the research programming, partnership engagement, delivery and effectiveness of FTA at a strategic level.
