Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy (QCC)

The QCC was launched at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting held in Malta in 2015.  It is a unique network of forest conservation initiatives which embraces all 52 countries of the Commonwealth.  It presents a rare opportunity for the Commonwealth family to play its part in saving one of the world’s most important natural habitats, forests, by creating a pan-Commonwealth network of forest conservation projects.

A presentation ceremony and reception hosted by the Queen to recognise the 20 Commonwealth countries already committed to the QCC initiative was held at Buckingham Palace on 15 November 2016.  Samoa was represented by its High Commissioner to the UK and the Court of St James, H.E. Fatumanava III Dr Pa’olelei Luteru.
