What We Work On
Our members' work ranges from on the ground development and conservation projects, to investigative and other research, to advocacy, campaigning, and litigation.
Whilst each member organisation has its own activities, and areas of expertise and engagement, the focus in coming together in this Coalition is on UK Government policies, funding, programmes, and actions.
We are working together, alongside others including civil society organisations, Governments, and the private sector, to push for strong policies, actions, and funding, which address the problems; and to find sustainable and just solutions.
The United Kingdom has long been a world leader in the fight against the destruction of forests and biodiversity loss, the promotion of sustainable and legal trade in forest products, and the securing of jobs and tenure for local people to uphold their rights and reduce poverty.
The national and global importance of maintaining this leadership role has never been greater.
