What we do
Rainforest Foundation Norway has a rights-based approach to rainforest protection. Research and our own experience have shown that the most effective way to protect the rainforest is to secure the rights and opportunities of its traditional populations to manage the forest for the long term.
The rainforest is home to millions of people. When the forest is destroyed, they stand to lose everything: their homes, their culture and their future. These people have a strong motivation to safeguard the rainforest, and are its natural guardians. This is why we are working closely with them to preserve it.
