About

The Coalition for Rainforest Nations (CfRN) assists tropical governments, communities and peoples conserve their rainforests. Healthy rainforests protect against a changing climate, generate needed biodiversity and provide safe habitats.

Due to the Coalition’s innovative leadership, around 90% of the world’s remaining rainforests are now included under the United Nation’s REDD+ Mechanism to incentivize conservation. A first in human history!
