Localising forest-climate action

Engaging with local groups, regional associations and national federations of locally-controlled forestry organisations to upscale effective climate change adaptation, resilience and mitigation through the restoration of forest landscape biodiversity

IIED's forest team works with partners in Africa, Asia and Latin America to help Indigenous Peoples, local communities and smallholder farmers to understand, measure and articulate how their forest and land use systems contribute to climate action and biodiversity conservation. We help position their organisations as the most effective conduits and agency for finance to achieve those aims.
