Rainforest Foundation UK

The Rainforest Foundation UK works with communities in the Congo Basin rainforests, supporting their efforts to legally own their traditional lands. Our projects support forest-dependent communities to document threats to their forest, challenge logging and palm oil companies, manage their forests and protect the environment. 

Palm Oil

Palm Oil

Palm oil has already devastated large areas of rainforest across South East Asia, harming people, wildlife and the environment. Through its projects with local partners and communities, the Rainforest Foundation UK is working to stop the rainforests of the Congo Basin in Central Africa suffering the same fate.

Real Time Monitoring

Real Time Monitoring

Using real time monitoring technology developed by the Rainforest Foundation UK, forest communities can send alerts and evidence of illegal logging, illegal mining and oil spills. The technology is currently used to protect forests across Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Ghana and Peru.

Community Forests

Community Forests

Evidence shows rainforest areas thrive where forest peoples have been given the legal title for their lands. With your help, The Rainforest Foundation UK can work with even more local communities to secure their rights to land and livelihood with the aim to alleviate poverty, improve rural livelihoods and reduce deforestation.
