Forest Allies is a community of practice focused on protecting, restoring, and enabling responsible management of tropical forests. Together with company partners, we will build and foster unique partnerships, work beyond individual supply chains, and engage and empower local communities in critical forest landscapes. We invite your company to join our Forest Allies community to have a greater impact on forests.
The best guardians of the forest are those who make their living from it. But forest communities often lack access to the resources that would enable their enterprises to meet their full economic potential. Through membership in Forest Allies, business partners will support the Rainforest Alliance’s model of Integrated Community Forest Management, which focuses on both protecting natural forests and partnering with communities to build strong local economies.
To positively affect tropical forests and their communities, join the critical work of Forest Allies by becoming a member. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Forest Allies aims to create long-lasting impact through people and partnerships. With our community of practice, we want to contribute to:
- Maintaining and restoring forests and biodiversity
- Implementing sustainable forest management at scale
- Supporting forest communities in adapting to climate change
- Elevating the expertise of forest communities
- Improving livelihoods for foresters and their families
