Protecting rainforests in partnership with indigenous peoples since 1989

Rights

We support indigenous leaders to secure and assert their rights at local, national and international levels and foster networks, alliances, and platforms that strengthen their voice.

Lands

We partner with indigenous communities to obtain legal rights to customary lands and to protect them from deforestation through technical training, legal and negotiation support, and advocacy.

Leadership

We work with indigenous peoples’ organizations, NGOs and leaders to build the institutions, governance structures and technical skills to advance their policy and development objectives.
