Dignity for All
What's at Stake
Deforestation frequently occurs in tandem with human rights violations; the agricultural sector is rife with abuses as well. In vulnerable landscapes, poverty, violence, displacement, labor violations, and the disenfranchisement of forest communities and farm workers threaten the dignity of people and the health of forests.
Our Work in Human Rights
The Rainforest Alliance fosters a holistic vision of development that emphasizes the environmental, economic, and social rights of farming and forest communities. Although training and certification cannot solve entrenched, systemic oppression, they are powerful tools for incremental, positive, and widespread change.
