The Forestry and Climate Science Exchange Program Leadership Visit

The U.S. Forest Service leaders welcomed leadership from the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of Bangladesh to Washington, D.C. on July 14, 2023. USAID’s Compass program, implemented by the U.S. Forest Service, partnered with the University of New Hampshire to implement the Forestry and Climate Science (FoCaS) exchange activities that bring together academic, research, and implementing agencies. The FoCaS activities are mutually beneficial and allow for the sharing of environmental partnership approaches that strengthen the forestry, natural resource management, and academic sectors in Bangladesh and in the United States.
