Steering Committee

TFD’s Steering Committee consists of up to 25 members and is led by two Co-Leaders. The Committee comprises a dedicated and passionate group of individuals who have been invited to join based on their leadership roles in the forest sector, or other related sectors. Committee members are chosen for their abilities to help build trust and a shared understanding within a collaborative environment. Between 2000 and 2010, TFD has engaged over 60 Steering Committee members. The relatively large size of the Committee enables diverse stakeholders and forest issues to be reflected, and its effectiveness stems from its members’ abilities to efficiently build vital connections and trust. In recent years the Steering Committee has increased its diversity over geography, stakeholder groups and has improved its gender balance. The Committee is supported by an Executive Team, set up in August 2010 to take forward the main decisions of the Committee. A list of past steering committee members is also available.
