Locally-controlled forestry

Supporting just transitions towards locally-controlled forestry that improve livelihoods, enhance forest biodiversity conservation and deliver effective climate action

IIED's forest team works with partners in Africa, Asia and Latin America to sustain forests and the prosperity of Indigenous Peoples, local communities and smallholder farmers who live in and around forests. This includes work to strengthen locally controlled forest organisations, incubate their sustainable businesses, shape more enabling forest governance arrangements and enhance more effective climate action.
