What We Do
In This Section
Our goal is to help indigenous peoples and forest communities around the world gain the land and resource rights they deserve, and in the process reduce deforestation activities such as illegal logging and palm oil production.
Extractive industries, the lack of recognition of community land rights, weak governance and flawed environmental protection policies all contribute to marginalising forest protection and the people who have protected them for centuries.
We help by offering legal support, and working with local partners on projects such as Mapping for Rights, Community Legal Fieldworkers and Sustainable livelihoods.
