Forest Peoples Programme

Forest Peoples Programme supports forest peoples to secure and sustainably manage their forests, lands and livelihoods.

Our strategies to achieve this include:

(a) promoting the rights and interests of forest peoples at local, national and international levels;

(b) creating space for forest peoples to have an effective voice in decision-making processes;

(c) challenging top-down policies and projects that deprive local peoples of resources;

(d) coordinating support among environmental organizations for forest peoples' vision;

(e) supporting community-led sustainable forest management; and

(f) publicizing forest peoples' plight through research, analysis and documentation.
