Community Forests International believes the most important climate solutions can be found wherever people live and work closely with forests. That's why we work to protect and restore the climate by enabling communities and forests to thrive together.
We care about forests and the people connected to them.
We know that fostering strong relationships between people and forests is critical for a safe future. Our solutions always benefit both forests and the people directly connected to them.
We need healthy forests now, more than ever. By directly protecting old forests, we can avoid the emissions that would be released if they were destroyed. These protected forests then act as deepening carbon sinks with countless co-benefits.
We plant a diversity of native tree species in degraded landscapes to bring back lost forests for future generations. Forests are important allies in the fight for a climate secure future and within 10 to 15 years, newly restored forests begin to pull down a significant amount of carbon from the atmosphere.
We combine agriculture and forestry innovations to help farmers transform depleted land into resilient agroforestry systems that are better for people and the planet.
We work with forestry professionals to increase the resilience of their forests and provide resources for accessing new regenerative opportunities like forest carbon offsetting.
For over 10 years we have been empowering rural communities to thrive with forests. Check out some of our impact to date:
Co-creating solutions for people and the planet.
Protecting endangered forests by holding them in trust.
Planting back lost forests for future generations.
Supporting climate-smart innovation.
