Climate Adaptive Livelihoods

Empowering communities

Community Forests International creates solutions for the climate, forests, and rural communities. We know that some of our biggest challenges are also opportunities for growth. Community Forests International promotes climate-smart rural development, implementing projects that introduce, support, and commercialize appropriate technological innovations intended to enhance livelihoods in the face of climate change.

Gender Equality

The effects of climate change severely exacerbate the challenges women face as primary providers of household needs. In Tanzania, women are often responsible for providing food, water, and energy to households in rural areas and are more dependent on natural resources than men due to unequal access to assets and income.

Acadian Forest Adaptation

Community Forests International shares and develops knowledge and tools that help build the capacity of rural landowners to manage their lands for climate mitigation and increase our forests’ ability to adapt to climate change. Together we work to manage Acadian forests to store more carbon and mitigate the effects of climate change on the forests.
