Forest Trends is a Washington D.C.-based international non-profit organization. Forest Trends seeks to shift the economic paradigm towards recognizing the value in all natural ecosystems, connecting policy-makers, businesses, communities, and investors to develop new financial tools to help carbon, biodiversity, and water markets work for conservation and sustainability.
Forest Trends is finding innovative policy solutions and developing market solutions that work for conservation as well as the economy to protect our forests, soils, water, and wildlife.
Forest Trends strives to protect forests by:
Providing high-quality research that focuses on deforestation where it is most acute: in key tropical forest countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
- Partnering with indigenous and traditional communities in their efforts to secure their rights, conserve their forests, and improve their livelihoods and territorial governance. These communities play a key role in the global challenge of fighting climate change and saving the remaining forests from destruction.
- Finding innovative policy solutions that governments and businesses in consumer countries can take to address the demand that drives this forest loss.
- Working across the spectrum of public and private finance to protect forests and decrease greenhouse gas emissions, promote legal and sustainable forest trade, and preserve the rights of indigenous communities and other traditional forest stewards.
