What's at Stake
Agriculture drives 80 percent of tropical deforestation and about 1.5 billion tons of greenhouse gas emissions each year. Maximizing harvests on existing cropland is critical to a secure global food supply. The race to feed the world's growing population (9.8 billion by 2050), while also addressing the impacts of climate change on farms, begins now.
Our Work in Food & Farming
The Rainforest Alliance works with the farmers on the front lines of the global movement to build food security through sustainable agriculture. We train farmers in some of the world's most vulnerable landscapes to farm in a way that conserves forests, protects streams and rivers, nurtures soil health, and boosts crop yields.
Join us to help rebalance the earth.
