What's at Stake
Communities around the world depend on strong forests for clean air, safe water, and climate stability. People have already destroyed or degraded 50 percent of the world's forests. Those that remain are threatened by the destructive cycle of global inequity, rural poverty, and landscape degradation.
Our Work in Communities
The economic security and well-being of farming and forest communities are central to our long-term vision of a rebalanced Earth. That's why we've embedded concrete strategies to support the environmental, economic, and social health of rural communities around the world into our training and certification programs.
Join us to help rebalance the earth.
The world's second largest tropical rainforest is home to endangered gorillas. Community forestry is essential to the future of this region.
