Engaging Communities, Farmers and Businesses in Climate Change Action
The Rainforest Alliance has conserved hundreds of thousands of hectares of rainforest from destruction over the past two and a half decades. Yet our mission is more urgent now than ever before. Tropical deforestation produces a significant amount of the world’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, which in turn contribute to climate change. By providing farmers, foresters and businesses with a combination of proven tools and innovative practices for responsible land management and conservation, the Rainforest Alliance engages communities and businesses in effective climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts, as well as in the protection of forests and valuable ecosystems.
