If we are to save the rainforest and secure the rights of forest peoples, we must address the underlying causes of rainforest destruction. Together with our network of partners, we work to influence the policies and practices of governments, intergovernmental bodies and private enterprises to ensure that they are consistent with rainforest protection.
Rainforest Foundation Norway supports indigenous peoples and traditional populations of the world’s rainforests in their efforts to protect their environment and secure their customary rights. RFN was established in 1989 and works alongside local environmental, Indigenous, and human rights organizations in the main rainforest countries in the Amazon region, Central Africa, Southeast Asia, and Oceania. RFN is an independent organization, and part of the international Rainforest Foundation network, with sister organizations in the United Kingdom and the USA.
