Founded in rural New Brunswick in 2008, Community Forests International believes that the most important climate solutions can be found wherever people live and work closely with forests. Whether in Canada or abroad, we know that fostering strong relationships between people and forests is critical to ensuring a climate-secure future. While the regions we work in are home to altogether different ecosystems and a host of different challenges, our solutions always benefit both forests and the people directly connected to them.
Community Forests International created one of Canada’s first forest carbon offset projects to finance conservation of the endangered Acadian forest and the organization continues to lead the development of adaptation strategies that preserve forest health as the climate changes. We now help family forest owners access these same resources and opportunities, and together we are striving to protect and restore the Acadian forest as one of Canada’s greatest carbon storehouses.
2.5 million trees and counting. Halfway around the planet on the Zanzibar islands, one of the most vulnerable regions in the world, we have worked for more than a decade to advance ecosystem-based adaptation, build economic prosperity, and improve gender equality through a locally-led and integrated approach.
