Our Community Forests project aims to establish a successful model of community-based forest management, one that focuses on the rights, needs and priorities of local communities, including those of marginalised groups such as indigenous peoples and women.
This project helps indigenous Asháninka families in the Peruvian Amazon to generate sustainable income through the production of environmentally-friendly crops like cocoa. Our work is based in the Ene River valley, Junin Region, Peru, where we work closely with the Kemito Ene cocoa cooperative.
