Worried about poverty? Then do something about it.
Roughly 1.6 billion people around the world directly depend on forests for their livelihoods. Workers all over the world support their families with income earned from activities—like forestry, farming and tourism—that take place in rainforests, and many of them earn less than USD $1.25 a day.
We help forest-dependent communities adopt sustainable practices that help them access new international markets while keeping land productive for future generations. Meanwhile, certified operations guarantee better benefits to their workers, including clean water, sanitary facilities, and access to education and health care.
Quite simply, our solutions work. Check out our incredible infographic, and join the Rainforest Alliance in helping people and nature prosper together.
