Our Partner Rainforest Communities

Rainforest Partnership believes that sustainable economic development can be consistent with protecting rainforests and curbing climate change. To this end, Rainforest Partnership works with carefully selected rainforest communities in the Amazon that hold these same beliefs. We help to support these communities to develop a sustainable source of income while preserving their rainforests.
