Forest Connect: reducing poverty by ending isolation
This Reflect and Act showcases lessons learnt from the Forest Connect project, which works to avoid deforestation and reduce poverty by better linking sustainable small forest enterprises to each other, to markets, to service providers and to policy processes.
To restore forests and get out of poverty, rural communities need the knowledge and connections to build flourishing enterprises. Forest Connect aims to reduce poverty and protect forests by better linking locally-controlled forest and farm enterprises, not only to each other, but also to markets, financial and business support services and to decision makers, policymakers and policy processes, such as National Forest Programmes.
