Our Role in an Interdependent World
What's at Stake
People around the world depend on strong forests for clean air, pure water, food, medicine, a stable climate. Humans have already destroyed or degraded more than half of the world's forests. Those that remain are threatened by the destructive cycle of global inequity, rural poverty, and landscape degradation.
Our Work: People
The economic security and the wellbeing of farming and forest communities are central to a 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.
We’re improving life for community members by advocating for workers' rights, advancing projects that promote gender equity, and expanding access to education.
The world's second largest tropical rainforest is home to endangered gorillas. Community forestry is essential to the future of this region.
