The Rainforest Alliance Certified™ coffee farms that have implemented the Sustainable Agriculture Network’s Climate Module guidelines for climate-friendly agriculture report important environmental and economic benefits.
In early 2013 the Rainforest Alliance commissioned the Food Economy Group, with support from the ISEAL Alliance’s Demonstrating Improvements in Poverty Impacts project, to conduct an Individual Household Economy Approach (IHEA)1 baseline study of livelihoods in South Sulawesi, Indonesia.
Over de hele wereld, in bossen en in de landbouw, in keukens en supermarkten, in klaslokalen, pers- en directiekamers, werkt Rainforest Alliance aan bescherming van de biodiversiteit, behoud van natuurlijke bronnen, reductie van klimaatverandering en economische ontwikkeling voor lokale bevolkingsgroepen.
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.
The long-term environmental, social and economic benefits of Rainforest Alliance certification are undeniable. When farms meet the comprehensive criteria of the Sustainable Agriculture Network (SAN) Standard, not only do they protect forests, provide habitat for wildlife and ensure the rights and well-being of workers, their families and their communities -- they often see increases in productivity and receive price premiums.
